Cert # 1872827-004
Coin Number 88
This is one of the nicest of the four to six known AU-58 examples of the 1858-S eagle. Most are lower end and not nearly this attractive. Notice the delicate copper tones around the date and stars, as well as on the reverse. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are pleasing. Luster invites study and soothes the eye. A challenging date and mint to find at all with a meager mintage of 11,800 pieces of which between 55 and 70 exist today. This one is right at the top of those known, with none found to retain Mint State quality. An excellent example of this prized issue.
