1861-S $20.00 PCGS AU55

Old Green Label Holder. Housed in an old PCGS holder and very choice for the grade but not quite, in my opinion, an AU58 by today's standards. This piece is probably from a European source as it exhibits rich natural orange-gold color with some darker highlights. A small semi-circular scrape below stars four through six keeps this coin from grading higher but it is choice, frosty and original. The 1861-S is a scarce Civil War date that dramatically increases in value as it climbs up the grading scale.
