Description & Analysis

Produced in an era when gold coins circulated widely on the frontier, the 1860-S started as a low mintage issue with just 35,600 pieces struck. Since most coins entered circulation and remained there until lost, it is not surprising that only 150 pieces are believed extant in all grades.
