    Frosty 1859-S Seated Dollar, MS62

    1859-S $1 MS62 PCGS. With a skimpy mintage of 20,000 examples, the 1859-S is an issue that is seldom encountered in the higher Mint State grades. The 1859 Seated Liberty dollars from all three mints were intended for export to China, and the available evidence suggests that most did indeed make their way there, only to be promptly melted down into bullion.
    The present piece is one of a half-dozen so graded at PCGS, with another half-dozen pieces in MS62 at NGC (12/07). There are only another dozen pieces at both services graded finer, as always discounting the possibility of duplication in the data. Both sides of this example show a touch of champagne-gold patina over the frosty silver surfaces. While there are a few light contact marks consistent with the grade, none of them are bothersome or individually severe. Population: 6 in 62, 7 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24YZ, PCGS# 6948)

    The way you grouped lots, photographed, and presented the material was too notch. I was impressed that you took the time to attribute coins to the Krause reference as their "plate coin" and that many of your descriptions included pertinent facts and infor
