thin die line connects the right tip of the digit 5 to the bust
truncation, a diagnostic of this obverse die. The reverse has a
large D mintmark centered above the tip of the fraction bar, and
joined to the branch stem. The 1857-D is a low-mintage issue (2,364
pieces) that is rare in Mint State grades.

This MS61 example has sharp design features on both sides with frosty luster and attractive lemon-gold color. Some light handling marks are noted under magnification. Mint State examples of this date are seldom encountered, with estimates suggesting that only eight to 10 examples survive today.
