Description

Brilliant AU58 1857-O Eagle

1857-O $10 AU58 PCGS. Fully brilliant surfaces. The fields were prooflike at the time of issue and much of that original mirrorlike character still survives although disrupted by the presence of bagmarks. Most central design features are sharp, but with striking softness at the obverse stars as seems to be typical for many issues in the Liberty Head eagle series. Close examination reveals a planchet lamination flaw passing through the final three digits of the date, something mentioned more for purposes of identification than for any other reason. Only 5,500 eagles were minted at the New Orleans Mint during the year, and survivors are scarce in all grades, especially above the XF level.(#8623) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 263U, PCGS# 8623)
