Description:
Condition Census 1859-O Eagle AU55
1859-O $10 AU55 NGC. The 1859-O is the rarest O-mint Eagle and, in fact, is one of the most elusive coins in the entire denomination from 1795 to 1933. Just 2,300 pieces were struck and surviving examples represent only about 2 percent of the original production. No Mint State examples have surfaced over the past few decades, with the highest certified example being a lone AU58. Original and uncleaned with coppery patina outlining the devices, the surfaces on this Condition Census representative display only the normal scattered marks in the fields from circulation. The radial details on the stars are virtually all flat, but elsewhere the coin is well defined, which seems to be characteristic of the few examples we have handled. A great opportunity for the collector of Southern gold. Population: 5 in 55, 1 finer (4/04).(#8629) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2642, PCGS# 8629)
