Description

Highly Collectible 1859-S Seated Dollar

1859-S $1 AU53 PCGS. The Philadelphia Mint shipped 10 pairs of Seated dollar dies west for this, the premier production of this denomination at the San Francisco Mint. Since only 20,000 coins were struck, it is highly likely that most dies remained unused. Both sides are originally toned in deep blue-gray shades, and exhibit uncommonly sharp peripheral striking detail particularly on the obverse over Liberty's head and the star centrils. There is only light, even wear although scattered abrasions are seen on both sides.
From The Alexander Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24YZ, PCGS# 6948)
