Description

Rare Choice AU 1859-S Seated Dollar

1859-S $1 AU55 PCGS. Sea-green and lavender patina embraces this lightly abraded rare date Dollar. The eagle's neck and the left (facing) claw are not fully struck, while the stars and the Seated Liberty device are bold. The upper reverse field has wispy slide marks from its short stint in circulation. An important issue, as it is the only San Francisco Mint Silver Dollar prior to the legendary 1870-S rarity. Only 20,000 pieces were struck. Population: 12 in 55, 29 finer (4/03). (NGC ID# 24YZ, PCGS# 6948)
