Only 10,000 were struck and as with virtually all San Francisco eagles from this era, the 1874-S was heavily melted and few survive in higher grades. In fact, this EF45 is nicer than the typical example.

This evenly worn piece shows good detail for the issue with full leg feathers and sharp hair. There are numerous small circulation marks, consistent with the grade, seen below medium brassy-gold color. Some luster clings to the protected areas on both sides as well.

The last PCGS EF45 1874-S eagle with CAC approval to sell at auction was this exact coin which brought $2,990 as Heritage 4/11: 6658.

CAC has approved three in this grade with three finer.
