    1860-S Five Dollar, AU58
    Among the Finest Known

    1860-S $5 AU58 NGC. Like almost all S-mint fives and tens from the 1860s and 1870s, this is a rare and seldom-seen issue, especially so in high grade. And high grade for the 1860-S is AU58. Each of the major grading services has only certified one coin finer, placing this piece in the mid-Condition Census for the issue. The surfaces are remarkably bright and vibrant with considerable flash in the fields and mint luster surrounding the devices. A loupe reveals a number of small, but individually insignificant marks, as one would expect for the grade. The strike details are generally strong with only minor high-point softness seen in the centers. Census: 6 in 58, 1 finer (2/14).
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 25VJ, PCGS# 8287)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
