Near-Mint 1857-O Eagle--Tied For Finest Known

1857-O AU 58 PCGS. Because of the very low mintage of only 5,500 pieces, third lowest among O-mint No Motto tens, the 1857-O is a fairly well known issue. While lower grade examples can usually be found for a price, AU coins are very rare with nothing known above that level. This piece is tied with one other as the finest certified by the two major services. The surfaces are bright with much of the original surface remaining. The fields are semi-reflective giving the coin an added dimension of brightness. Reasonably well struck for an O-mint ten, especially in the centers, with some softness noted on the peripheral stars. The most noticeable abrasion is in the field between the forehead and star 5. A small group of milling marks are also seen in the fields on each side of Liberty's neck. (NGC ID# 263U, PCGS# 8623)
