SSCA #6970.

There are around 10 known Uncirculated examples of this date with most in the MS60 to MS62 range. The present example is among the finest known, and it is tied for the best found on the SS Central America.

This nicely toned piece has a few grade limiting scuffs in the left obverse field and is identifiable by a small obverse rim mark below the 57 in the date.

This coin was part of a remarkable three-coin 1857-S set which I offered intact last month but was unable to sell it as a group. It is now being split up with each coin offered individually; the half eagle and eagle are offered below.

CAC has approved three in this grade with none finer.

Ex Christie's 12/00: 20 where it realized $6,900.
