1859. NGC graded MS-61. Only 15,558 minted of which merely 1,500 examples are estimated to have survived. Clearly superior to the vast majority of often-abraded Uncirculated pieces, this sleek lightly toned golden example has virtually no blemishes and benefits from the high production standards employed by the Mint during this decade. If one were to take a poll, we'd see that the strike is nonstandard for the issue in being sharp with the excellent metal flows on both sides into the deepest die recesses; in other words, a very bold strike. Pop 43; 63 finer. The reverse is rotated 10 degrees (PCGS # 7979) .
Estimated Value $2,700 - 2,800.
The Dandelion Collection.

Realized $2,990
