Description:
Elusive High Grade 1859-S Seated Dollar
1859-S $1 AU55 NGC. Breen-5462. 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. Repunching at the bases of the 1 and 8 in the date attributes the present example, and it is an early die state. Neither side is toned, and both exhibit uncommonly sharp striking detail for the type that is particularly impressive on the obverse over Liberty's head and the star centrils and on the reverse over the eagle's left (facing) leg feathers. There is little evident wear, although scattered abrasions are seen on both sides.(#6948) (Registry values: N2400) (NGC ID# 24YZ, PCGS# 6948)
