Description:
MS62+ 1861-S Two and Half
Tied for Finest Certified
1861-S $2 1/2 MS62+ PCGS. Unlike its Philadelphia Mint cousin, which is plentiful in Mint State by the standards of the No Motto type, the 1861-S is rare in Uncirculated grades. Only 24,000 pieces were struck, and among the 200 or so survivors, most grade between VF35 and AU58. The present coin is tied with one other for the honor of finest certified at either major service. It is a pleasing honey-gold representative with minimally abraded fields and ample billowy luster. The strike is precise aside from minor softness on the eagle's left (facing) leg plumage. Population: 2 in 62+, 0 finer (6/11).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25JY, PCGS# 7795)
