1858-S. PCGS graded VF-35. Only 11,800 struck. Light hint of gold tone. The 1858-S Liberty eagle is rare enough that it is, in fact, often compared to the much better known P-mint issue from this year. In 1980, David Akers rated the '58-S in the top 10% of the entire series in terms of rarity, according to frequency of auction appearances. The surfaces on this piece display natural mellow gold color, with faint orangish accents. Well struck and only slightly abraded, there are bits of mint frost in the protected areas on each side (PCGS # 8627) .
Estimated Value $1,500 - 1,600.

Realized $2,875
