Announcement: Sunday & Tuesday Internet Coin Auctions and Weekly World and Ancient Coin Auctions move to Heritage Live!

Our Weekly Internet Coin Auctions and World and Ancient Coin Auctions are closing with live, online auctions on HA.com's Heritage Live! platform beginning with the Internet Coin Auction that ends Sunday, September 21st and the World and Ancient Coin Auction that ends on Thursday, September 25th. Each lot is offered one at a time, in lot number order, in live auctions beginning at 8:00 PM CT. During this part of the auction, live bidders will be on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. The lot opens, requests live bids, and then closes when the bidding is finished. There is no change in how you place your secret maximum bids during the week the auctions are open on HA.com. In addition, once bidding on HA.com ends, 2 hours before the live sessions start, you still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live!

For more information about Heritage Live!, please visit HA.com/live. If you have any questions about this exciting format change, please contact us at 800-872-6467 or Bid@HA.com.

Description:
Possibly Unique Mint State 1855-O Eagle
1855-0 $10 MS 61 PCGS. Normal Date. Sharply struck and quite attractive with undisturbed satiny luster below a touch of pale orange-gold color. The surfaces are almost entirely free of marks, and a few faint hairlines can be seen with magnification. Easily the finest 1855-O eagle we have seen and quite possibly the finest known. One of the most important eagles in this superb collection.
The 1855-O eagle is a rare, underrated issue. There are fewer than 100 pieces known from the original mintage of 18,000 and most survivors are in the Very Fine to Extremely Fine grade range. Approximately a dozen AU pieces are known and just a small number of these grade better than AU 50. There are currently two MS 61 1855-O eagles listed in the PCGS Population Report. We have never seen the other and are not certain if this listing does not represent a resubmission of the Acadiana collection specimen. If this is the case, then the presently offered coin is unique in Mint State.
From the Ronald W. Brown Acadiana Collection; obtained via private treaty from Doug Winter in 1996; earlier Ex: RARCOA; Martin Paul; Ed Milas Collection; and said to earlier be from the Farouk collection. (NGC ID# 263M, PCGS# 8617)
