CHOICE AU 1856-S GOLD DOLLAR

S/S variety; not designated by PCGS.

The 1856-S gold dollar is a numismatically significant issue as it is the only Type Two gold dollar from the San Francisco mint as well as the final issue of this short-lived design. It is moderately scarce in the higher AU grades but few pieces so graded are choice and original.

This lightly worn piece is lustrous and well-detailed with clean surfaces and pleasing pale green-gold color which changes to a deeper orange-gold hue at the borders. There are two interesting die cracks on the obverse which both terminate at the portrait.

Goldberg 6/16: 1402, graded AU55 by PCGS and approved by CAC, sold for $3,875.

This is the only 1856-S dollar graded AU55+ by PCGS and it is an uncommonly appealing example of this historically notable issue.

CAC has approved six in AU55 with 16 finer.
