Description

PCGS 1856 MS 63. While not one of the better dates in this scarce, low mintage series, the 1856 is, nevertheless, a popular issue if for no other reason than because of the earliness of the date and subsequent popularity of all issues from the decade of the 1850s. This piece is typically struck with noticeable weakness of details on the hair curls of Liberty and the wreath on the reverse. The surfaces are abundantly lustrous and colored a medium golden-yellow. There are just the faintest abrasions, and were the strike more complete, the coin would undoubtedly grade significantly higher. (NGC ID# 25M8, PCGS# 7974)

I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
