Greysheet Catalog Details (GSID: 26004)

The 1905-S One peso is part of a series of 1 peso, territorial obverse coins struck from 1903-1906. The specific variety is Curved Serif. Struck in San Francisco and designated as a Business (MS) strike, this coin is made of 90% silver from a mintage of 6,056,000 struck.
All 1905-S pesos are uncommon, because by 1906 the rising price of silver made the coins worth more as precious metal than as legal tender. By 1911 as many as 90 percent of the 6,056,000 minted had been pulled from circulation and melted. Most of the coins of this mintage have a curved upper serif on the number 1 of the date. The Straight Serif would later be the normal style for 1906 pesos. But for the 1905-S it’s an extremely rare die variety, especially in Mint State, where its value runs in the thousands of dollars.
Reverse: An eagle is portrayed in the center atop an American shield with 13 stars. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is written around the periphery with the date at the bottom.

Greysheet & CPG® PRICE GUIDE

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors. Your use of this site indicates full acceptance of these terms.
