Owner Comments:

With only a single Mint State survivor known to exist, the 1870-S Eagle is also an extremely important find at the Choice AU grade level. This heavily circulated, frontier-era issue is also very rare in AU-55 and AU-58, however, and such pieces just do not trade all that often even in the most active numismatic markets. An important find for the specialized collector, the present example is minimally worn with dominant rose-gold color to both sides. The obverse also exhibits warmer copper-russet highlights around the peripheral devices. Boldly defined with only light highpoint rub and no sizeable or otherwise worrisome abrasions. Original mintage: just 8,000 pieces.
