Lot Description
1869-S $10 AU55 PCGS. During the Reconstruction Era following the Civil War, the San Francisco Mint was the primary facility for coinage of gold and silver. The area was largely unaffected by hoarding activities in the eastern states. Most of the coins minted on the West coast entered circulation where coinage was scarce. This impressive piece has rich orange-gold color with nearly full luster. Satiny fields host scattered surface marks expected at the Choice AU grade. This is an important piece for the advanced collector, with few finer examples known. Population: 4 in 55, 4 finer (9/10).
