Lot 1951

1859-D. Large D. PCGS graded MS-61. Variety 37-EE, Large Mintmark. The date is small and located slightly higher than on the other obverse of this year. The mintmark is positioned high and mostly over the E. The discovery coin appears to be in Bass II, lot 1117. Until this offering, the 1859-D with the Large D mintmark was unknown in Mint State. Our research indicates only about 10-12 1859-D (Large Mintmark) half eagles are known, most of them being XF/AU. This is truly a remarkable offering. Bright yellow-golden surfaces with just a few typical marks and abrasions. Well defined, including the central areas with full luster showing throughout. For pedigree purposes, a small orange toning spot is noted by star 3. Pop 1; none finer at PCGS. (PCGS # 98282) .
Estimated Value $15,000 - 16,000.
