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 very attractive example appears to be entirely untampered with as evidenced by the deep, even russet coloration seen on both sides; this deepens a bit at the borders. The strike is sharp with all of the central details up and bold while the surfaces are frosty and very choice. This is among the nicer AU58′s of this date that I have seen or sold.

The last AU58 1857-S gold dollar with CAC approval to sell at auction was a PCGS coin which brought $2,703 as Heritage 4/15: 6034.

Why not consider beginning a set of nice SF gold dollars with the acquisition of this pleasing slider?

CAC has approved seven in this grade with just two finer.
