This lovely 1859-O probably came from one of relatively few found as part of the Treasury hoard. Such pieces are widely distributed today. Silver-white surfaces display a blush of golden-russet toning on both sides. The strike is bold, and the surfaces show scattered bagmarks and a few lines, but retain more than the usual presence that keeps the eye appeal high.
