Description

Conditionally Noteworthy 1842-O Eagle, AU58

1842-O $10 AU58 NGC. Eagle production increased tenfold over the inaugural year of 1841. However, the issue met with a similar fate of the 1841-O tens, and few coins have survived in high grade. Between the two major grading services, as of (12/08), only four 1842-O eagles have been certified as Uncirculated, with a smattering of specimens at the near-Mint State level. Since the entire issue clearly entered the channels of commerce, most survivors are heavily abraded or impaired. Finding an example with above-average eye appeal is indisputably challenging. The piece offered here displays delicate lime-green and peach-gold coloration over the satiny surfaces. Well struck with light wear and a few scattered marks. A conditionally noteworthy example of this early New Orleans Mint issue. Census: 19 in 58, 3 finer (12/08).
From The Grand Lake Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 262N, PCGS# 8587)

Another major house refused the work stating it was too unique for the artist. Heritage saw that as an advantage!
