Description:
Almost Uncirculated 1839 Type of 1840 Ten Dollar, AU50
1839 $10 Type of 1840 AU50 PCGS. Also known as the Small Letters type, this is a separate type altogether and much scarcer than the Large Letters type. Only 12,447 pieces were struck and examples are rare in any grade with most survivors grouped in the VF-XF grade range. This is the first example we have offered in any grade at public auction since our 1998 FUN Sale. Just a bit weakly defined around the peripheral stars on the obverse, the remainder of the coin is sharply defined. The bright surfaces retain a small portion of original mint luster around the devices, and the only mark of any note is a short vertical abrasion to the right of the eagle's head on the reverse. (NGC ID# 262F, PCGS# 8580)

Learn About Consigning With Us
What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
