Important AU 1859-O Eagle

1859-O $10 AU50 PCGS. As may be surmised from its original mintage of just 2,300 pieces, the 1859-O eagle is a highly elusive issue, though recent discoveries have made it slightly more available than was thought as late as the 1980s. Most survivors fall into the mid-range VF and XF grades, and AU and better pieces are conditionally rare. This yellow-orange piece, though softly struck as always on the stars, has pleasing central detail. Softly lustrous, lightly abraded fields show hints of reflectivity, particularly at the reverse margins. Two shallow marks are noted on Liberty's face. Population: 7 in 50, 11 finer (6/08).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2642, PCGS# 8629)

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
