1859 marked the debut of the Indian Cent, a design which would endure for the next fifty years. It also marked the last year of the "Stars" obverse on the Dimes and Half Dimes, which would be replaced with the legend "United States of America," previously on the reverse. Keys to this silver portion of the Mint Set include the 1859-S Quarter and Dollar, the former which is unknown in Mint State! While its mintage figure of 80,000 is fairly low, it is not low enough to explain why apparently none were saved in Uncirculated condition. The 1859-S Dime is also a tough coin to locate in Mint State; PCGS having graded only three in thirty years.
