1876-S Liberty Head Eagle. VF-35 (PCGS). Dominant olive-orange patina lightens to medium gold and pinkish-apricot shades as the surfaces dip into a light. The remaining detail is bold enough to support an EF designation, wispy hairlines and a somewhat glossy texture suggesting that PCGS net graded this coin to VF-35 due to light cleaning. With only 5,000 coins struck, the 1876-S eagle boasts the second lowest mintage of the San Francisco Mint issues in the Liberty Head eagle series. Unknown in Mint State, this issue is scarce to rare in all circulated grades with an extant population of just 80 to 100 coins (per <em>PCGS CoinFacts</em>).
