Our current featured coin comes from our favorite Three Cent Silver series. It is an 1858 which is the last of the rarer Type 2 years. The coin is in an NGC XF45 holder but it has the look and toning usually only seen on nicer mint state coins. It is hard to see why this coin is not in a choice AU holder. The two outlines to the star are perfectly formed and well struck. This is not always the case on many mint state coins. Recent coins for this date in MS62 have sold for about $400. This coin looks every bit as nice and represents a tremendous value at only $175.
