Variety 9-L.

The 1857-D is a much harder issue to find than the 1858-D and 1859-D despite a small premium in current valuation over these two issues. It is not often seen in properly graded AU55 and it is rare above this, especially with good eye appeal.

This lustrous light yellow-gold example shows a typical strike for the issue with inconsistent details on the obverse and reverse. There is just a small amount of wear and the fields are clean save for a few small marks in the left obverse and at the central reverse.

Three AU55 examples were auctioned in 2013 (two in NGC holders and one in a PCGS holder) and, remarkably, all three brought the same price: $3,819.

For less than $4,000 this is the nicest available quality for the date and grade.
