Lot Description
1864-S H10C MS 66 PCGS. Unsurpassable in terms of technical quality, this is a simply stunning representative of this early S-mint delivery. The low mintage (90,000 pieces) 1864-S was produced at a time when silver coinage was in great demand in California. Most examples entered circulation and remained there until they were either lost or well worn. A gorgeous Gem, the untoned surfaces are aglow with swirling mint frost. Every feature is uncommonly well defined for the series and there are no bothersome abrasions. NGC and PCGS combined have graded only eight examples in the present grade (5/00). None are finer.
