Description

Conditionally Scarce 1859-S Seated Dollar, MS62

1859-S $1 MS62 NGC. Breen-5462. Obviously repunched 18. The conditional scarcity of this coin is not really surprising, considering the tiny original mintage for the issue of a mere 20,00 pieces. It may be even scarcer than expected, however, as just 12 examples are graded at MS62 and exactly 12 coins finer, at NGC and PCGS combined, as of (4/08). The satiny, ivory colored surfaces display crisply struck design elements on each side. Pleasant light accents of coral and rose are noted in the fields and near the borders. Shallow pinscratches on the lower right obverse field and across the eagle's beak may actually be adjustment marks. An attractive coin that would represent an important acquisition for the Seated dollar specialist. (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24YZ, PCGS# 6948)
