SCARCE UNDERVALUED 1857-S GOLD DOLLAR

The 1857-S is numismatically significant as the first of only five Type Three gold dollars from the San Francisco. A scant 10,000 were made and this issue is scarce in the higher AU grades and quite rare in Uncirculated. Most of the AU55 to AU58 examples I see have been cleaned or processed at one time.

This piece exhibits natural deep caramel-gold color on both sides and it appears to be unmolested without signs of having been processed as so many survivors have. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are clean with no appreciable marks.

Only two graded AU55 have sold at auction since August 2010. The most recent APR is Heritage 1/16: 6333 at $1,528; the coin was a non-CAC PCGS 55.

This would make a great start to a nice set of San Francisco gold dollars.
