Description & Analysis

The 1856-S eagle is one of the first productions from the fledgling San Francisco Mint, which opened in 1854. Despite the moderate production of 68,000 examples, most gold coins circulated in the hard-money-loving West, and the average survivor is well-circulated, about Choice XF or so.
