Lot Description
1869-S $10 AU53 NGC. Like the 1866-S Motto, 1868-S, and 1870-S to 1874-S (issues to which it compares favorably in overall rarity), the 1869-S is a challenging coin to locate in any grade. Just 6,430 pieces were produced of this heavily circulated, frontier-era date, and survivors are apt to grade no finer than VF. The surfaces are slightly reflective with deep reddish peripheral color and bold overall definition. Lightly to moderately abraded throughout. Census: 12 in 53, 12 finer (11/10). From The Las Vegas Collection, Part Two.
