Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1863-S is a moderately scarce date in all grades with most of the available specimens grading only VF or EF. In AU, this date is very scarce and in average uncirculated condition it is quite rare. Choice and gem quality examples do exist but they are definitely rare. However, among Type I Double Eagles from the San Francisco Mint, this is one of the most often encountered dates in original uncirculated condition.
