Owner Comments:

Mintage 21,200 and rare in spite of its mintage with probably less than 100 survivors in any grade.

Described in a Heritage auction as follows: The John Stimson, Sr. Collection, Part Two. The 1860-S is even rarer than implied by its mintage of 21,200 pieces, since no one collected such pieces on the West Coast until the 1890s. This is an original apricot-gold half eagle with pleasing surfaces and considerable luster. The usual blending of detail on Liberty's hair and the eagle's neck is principally due to the strike. Now CAC green beaned.

Purchased from Donald Hosier "at my first FUN show ever" in January 2014, CAC stickered.
