Choice About Uncirculated 1857 Liberty Eagle, A Low Mintage Rarity

1857 $10 AU55 NGC. Orange-gold and olive-copper colors blend over both sides of this important Liberty Eagle rarity. The central devices are suitably well defined despite light rub across the highpoints. The surfaces are moderately abraded, yet most of the individually distracting blemishes are confined to the reverse field. This P-mint delivery was produced to the extent of only 16,606 pieces. Even so, it is not widely recognized for either its overall or high grade rarity. Far finer than the typically offered VF or XF survivor, this Choice AU example is earmarked for inclusion in an advanced gold collection. The 1857 is equally as rare as the 1851 and the 1854 in terms of total number of coins known, but it is more elusive in high grades. (NGC ID# 263T, PCGS# 8622)
