Description

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. Neither side is toned, and both exhibit uncommonly sharp peripheral striking detail particularly 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 only light, even wear although scattered abrasions are seen on both sides.(#6948) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24YZ, PCGS# 6948)
