1863-S. NGC graded EF-40. Desirable Civil War date but struck in an area of the country where the winds of war weren't felt by the inhabitants. Whereas gold and silver coins went into hiding in the wartorn Eastern states, Out West, life went on pretty much as before. California's gold fields had passed their prime but new discoveries of gold (and silver) in Nevada -- the Comstock Lode -- were coming on stream in 1863 (PCGS # 8940) .
Estimated Value $1,400 - 1,450.

Realized $1,840
