The 1856 is typically lumped with other common dates such as the 1852, 1853 and 1854 but it is considerably scarcer in higher grades. Properly graded AU58s are very hard to locate and real Mint State coins are rare and well undervalued.

This Gem Slider has lovely rich rose and green-gold color and has not been cleaned or dipped. There is the slightest trace of friction on the high spots of the obverse but I have seen many inferior examples of this (and other No Motto dates) graded MS60, MS61 and even MS62.

There are no APR’s for CAC approved AU58s. The last non-CAC AU58 was an NGC-graded coin that brought $1,840 as Heritage 2/12: 4882.

This must rank as one of the nicer AU58 1856 eagles known and it seems like great value to me at less than $2,000.

CAC has approved six in this grade with only one finer.
