Memorable 1859-S Seated Dollar1859-S $1 AU58 NGC. Of the 20,000 coins that inaugurated silver dollar production at the San Francisco Mint in 1859, numismatic scholars assert that all but a handful were shipped overseas for use in Far East trade. A prized find in any grade, the legendary rarity of this issue in Mint State places extreme collector pressure on the few extant About Uncirculated survivors. Moderate shades of steel-golden patina overlay the highpoints and open fields. As befits the issue, the surfaces carry scattered circulation impairments, although we note that none of these are unduly bothersome. Despite trivial striking weakness on the eagle's left (facing) leg, the smartly impressed devices ensure this coin's memorable eye appeal.
