Description

Choice AU 1856-S Three Dollar
Elusive Small S Mintmark

1856-S $3 AU55 NGC. Small S, scarcer than its Medium S alternative. The 1856-S is the only relatively available S-mint three, as the mintages of the 1855-S and 1860-S were only about one-fifth as large, and the 1870-S is, of course, unique. This Choice AU example is nonetheless nicer than usual, with generous luster remaining over bright straw-gold surfaces that show only unimportant marks.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 25M9, PCGS# 7975)
