This better date is really tough to find in any condition. Only 52,500 were minted, many were melted down and never put into circulation. To hind high grade San Francisco Mint coinage is near impossible. The denomination was created as a means of exhausting an overage in gold supply due to the 1849 California Gold Rush.
They were never intended for general use in commerce as the amount easily equated to a month's wage during the time of issue - making them impractical to carry as a coin. PCGS encapsulation offers protection and guarantees the beautiful AU55 condition of the coin. Looks as nice as many NGC Mint State coins weve seen on the market.
Conservatively graded in our opinion, PQ++. Struck at the Denver Mint.
Obverse: Depicts Liberty striding forward holding a torch and an olive branch with the U. Capitol building in the backdrop.
Reverse: Features an eagle in flight against the sun in the background. Beautiful color and very rare in this condition.
