Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint shipped 6 obverse and 2 reverse dies west in October of 1868, but only 6,430 eagles emerged from the San Francisco facility the following year. An elusive coin that is similar in rarity to the 1866-S Motto, 1868-S, and the S-mint issues dated 1870-1874, the 1869-S is predominantly represented by VF survivors.
