Lot Description
1856-S 10C AU58 PCGS. Fortin-101. Only the single die pairing is known for the date, one that Gerry Fortin ranks R.5 overall, R.7 in Mint State. There is little obvious evidence of repunching on the mintmark, which fades after early die states, nor yet do die cracks appear. This is still a conditionally quite rare piece, from the mintage of 70,000 coins. The olive-green surfaces are well-struck and show lots of eye appeal. Population: 2 in 58, 8 finer (12/11).
