THE FINEST KNOWN 1857-S EAGLE

SSCA #6096

The 1857-S is one of the more available No Motto San Francisco eagles but it is very rare in Uncirculated and extremely rare in any grade above the MS60 to MS62 range.

This is one of two PCGS/SSCA MS64 1857-S eagles to have been found on this shipwreck and it is clearly the finer of the two by a considerable margin. In fact, it is one of the two finest San Francisco No Motto eagles of any date of which I am aware, exceeded only by the remarkable PCGS MS64 1865-S/Inverted Date from the S.S. Brother Jonathon which sold for $115,000 in its initial auction appearance in May 1999.

The coin is absolutely exceptional and, in my opinion, it would grade at least MS64+ if not a full MS65 if it were regarded according to today's standards. It is literally "as struck" with glowing golden-orange color, blazing luster and remarkable detail. The eye appeal is considerable and this coin is even more beautiful in hand than it is from the accompanying images.

If you are an advanced collector of Liberty Head eagles, high grade San Francisco gold or shipwreck coinage, this remarkable 1857-S eagle is a prize which could not be duplicated at any price.

CAC has approved this one coin in MS64 and none finer.
