1863-S $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. Well struck with some scattered minor contact marks in the fields. Attractive rose toning deepening at the devices. The abundant level of luster is found throughout and around the devices, but also spreading out across the open areas of the coin. The date is rare enough in Mint State grades that the noted gold coin collector Harry Bass was more than satisfied to find an attractive About Uncirculated 58 example, no doubt comparable in quality to this piece. It seems the majority of specimens that can be traced today reside at Very Fine or sometimes Extremely Fine level. Bowers, in one of his sale catalogs, stated: "Records of only a few Mint State examples can be found in the literature …" which is why we heartily recommend this handsome About Uncirculated 1863-S. Only 10,800 minted. Pop 10; 6 finer (PCGS # 7799) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 7,000.

Realized $5,750
