Lot Description
1858-S $20 MS 61 NGC. Pleasant golden fields on which contact marks can only be seen with the assistance of magnification. The design elements are strongly struck and clearly display minute detail. This is a strong strike. There appears to be doubling to the Y. Original mint bloom ripples across all surfaces. This is a very pleasing specimen, and a remarkable survivor in what is considered to be a challenging San Francisco mint issue. As such it is a high end condition rarity. This is a very challenging coin to find in Uncirculated grades. Population: 8 in 61, 2 finer (3/01).
