Description:
Important 1859-O Ten-Dollar--The Finest Known
1859-O AU 53 PCGS. The 1859-O is the rarest O-mint eagle and, in fact, is one of the rarest coins in the entire denomination from 1795 to 1933. Breen's assertion that "fewer than 12 survive" may be too low, with perhaps 30-35 pieces being a more accurate accounting of the total number extant. Nevertheless, it is a date that is seldom seen in any grade and at the AU 53 level this is easily the finest example known. This piece is certainly above average for an issue that is typically found heavily abraded and weakly struck. The obverse stars are ill-defined, but the central design motifs are well brought up with little weakness on the eagle's left (facing) leg. Faint remnants of semi-prooflikeness can still be made out beneath the rich reddish patina that covers both sides. Minimally abraded for the issue, the only mentionable mark is one at the back of the truncation of the neck. Another important and finest known ten-dollar Liberty from the Warren Miller Collection.
Ex: Four Landmark Collections (Bowers and Merena, 3/89), lot 5593. (NGC ID# 2642, PCGS# 8629)
