Estimated grade. Ex. Kreisberg (1956) Sold by David Akers Numismatics Oct '97 Price realized $2420
David Akers (1975/88): Exactly the same mintage as the 1857-S and very similar in overall rarity. As was the case with the 1857-S, strictly uncircualted examples of the 1858-S are all but nonexistence. In my estimation, all three of the 1857-S, 1858-S, and 1859-S are extremely underrated compared to other more glamorous dates in this popular series.
