Laibstain. Eliasberg from Clapp Estate. The coin was obtained directly from the San Francisco Mint by Mr. Clapp. This is a very nice coin with underlying luster, strong strike and nice toning. This is one of four Eliasberg coin in the set and there is no better pedigree, in our opinion. Originally purchased without the pedigree, but Ron Guth of PCGS recognized the coin and let us know it is from Eliasberg.
David Akers: Although often available in the lower Uncirculated grades, in Gem condition the 1912-S is both rare and somewhat underrated. It is not quite as rare as the 1911-S, but it is more rare in Gem than the 1909-S, 1910-S and the S Mint issues from 1913 to 1915.
