Medium S mintmark.

The 1856-S has an original mintage of 68,000 and an estimated 300 or so are known, mostly in the EF40 to AU50 grade range. Properly graded AU58 are very scarce, especially with natural color and choice surfaces. In Uncirculated, this is a very rare date with just four to five known, the finest of which is a PCGS MS63 from the S.S. Central America

This is a beautiful, fresh example with rich orange-gold and rose toning atop surfaces which show nearly full luster. There is just a smidgen of wear seen on the high spots of the obverse and the fields lack the dense, detracting abrasions seen on nearly all survivors. This is the best 1856-S eagle I have handled in some time.

No CAC approved AU58 1856-S eagle has ever sold at auction.

If you could find an MS61 example of this date you’d have to pay two to three times the asking price of this gem slider.

CAC has approved eight in this grade with five finer.
