    Popular Date!

    1857-S $5 PCGS MS62 ex: Bass

    $14,500.00
     

    One of six issues of the date offered in the original 1998 Bass sale, this coin was the finest certified by PCGS and is still housed in the original holder. With additional examples having been located from the SS Central America, there are theoretically 7 graded finer. However, those coins have been processed as sea salvage, leaving this piece being considered as likely the finest truly original example of the date.
