AU50 1838 Ten Dollar1838 $10 AU50 NGC. After a gap of 34 years, the eagle or ten dollar gold coin was made for circulation once again beginning in 1838. The earliest pieces in the Liberty Coronet series feature a distinctly different portrait from later dates, one that shows strands of hair sweeping over Liberty's temple and back toward a beaded hair bun. The "Type of 1838" is increasingly popular with collectors, especially in better circulated grades as seen here. This still-lustrous green-to-gold example has softly struck stars, though the interior definition is better, and wear is minor. Small, scattered marks on each side contribute to the grade. Census: 10 in 50, 19 finer (2/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 262D, PCGS# 8575)
