Market Acceptable $550 Sandy Gold Patina, Faint Hairlines, Bold Strike, West Texas Collection. The wicked good strike on this 1858-S half immediately captured my attention when cataloging the raw pieces in the West Texas Collection. Strike and the sandy gold colored surfaces suggested an original coin may be at hand. 10x loupe inspection revealed very faint obverse hairlines. This old wipe has dulled the obverse luster slightly while the reverse luster remains intact. An attractive example that has been adequately discounted and warrants a Market Acceptable quality rating.
