Lot Description
1869-S $10 AU55 NGC. Like other San Francisco issues from the 1860s, the 1869-S has a tiny mintage. Only 6,430 pieces were coined, and none were set aside by collectors of the day. As a result, just a single 1869-S has been certified as Mint State by NGC. The present example shows slight wear on the wingtips, coronet tip, and other highpoints, but the only relevant mark is a subtle edge nick at 2 o'clock on the reverse. Census: 10 in 55, 3 finer (5/08).
