Description

Rare Borderline Unc. 1865-S Eagle

1865-S AU 58 NGC. Perfect Date. One the finest known examples of an issue that is now recognized as one of the rarest in the entire series. The 'blundered die' or 'inverted date' variety of this year received a higher premium for many years because of its dramatic, clearly visible mint error. Only recently has it become clear that the 'Perfect Date' is far rarer. This important, near-Mint example has most of its original, satiny luster, and displays occasional softness on the obverse stars and eagle's neck feathers. There is a slight reddish tint overall, and unobtrusive abrasions are generally limited to the exposed fields. Population: 2 in 58, none finer (2/00). (NGC ID# 55MU, PCGS# 8642)
