Description

1857-O Eagle, AU53, Rare in AU
None Certified in Mint State

1857-O $10 AU53 NGC. From a tiny mintage of 5,500 pieces, the 1857-O eagle is a scarce date in any grade, and virtually unobtainable in Mint State. Doug Winter estimates a surviving population of 70-80 pieces in all grades, with most examples seen in VF or XF grades. The present coin is a sharply detailed piece, with only light wear showing on the highest points of the design. The surfaces are an attractive greenish-gold color, with original mint luster in sheltered areas and a minimum number of abrasions for the grade. Census: 9 in 53, 26 finer (7/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 263U, PCGS# 8623)
