Description

1856-S Three Dollar, MS61
Medium S, Rare in Mint State

1856-S $3 MS61 NGC. Ex: South Texas Collection. Medium S. The usual die variety with a "tail" break beneath the second L in DOLLARS. This straw-gold San Francisco representative is refreshingly unabraded. The strike is good, though the eyebrow and the hair above the ear show incompleteness. Luster is especially vibrant throughout the legends, wreath, and headdress. Though the most collectible S-mint issue of the denomination, the 1856-S is nonetheless very scarce, since only 34,500 pieces were struck, few of which retain full mint luster. Census: 11 in 61, 12 finer (7/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25M9, PCGS# 7975)
