Description

Large Letters 1839 Type of 1838 Eagle, MS62
Important Example of This Subtype

1839 $10 Type of 1838, Large Letters MS62 NGC. The Type of 1838, seen on early Gobrecht or Liberty Coronet ten dollar coins, is readily identified by the dramatic half-moon sweep of hair that passes from Liberty's temple over her ear and on to the back of the hair bun. The Type of 1838 has received considerable attention from type collectors, and the present piece is a noteworthy MS62 representative. Flashy, swirling yellow-gold luster dominates the centers, while splashes of orange and rose color are prominent along the rims. This variety with Large Letters reverse is a condition rarity in Mint State. Census: 1 in 62, 1 finer (11/10).
