Choice AU 1861-S Ten-Dollar--Tied For Second Finest Certified1861-S AU 55 NGC. A rare No Motto ten, one of just 15,500 pieces minted, and one that is occasionally available in lower grades but prohibitively rare in XF or better. Apparently no mint state examples have survived of this issue with the finest being 3 in AU 58. While often weakly struck, this piece is well defined on Liberty's hair curls as well as the plumage of the eagle with weakness limited to the peripheral stars on the obverse. Bright and retaining much of its original mint luster, each side has an even layering of light reddish patina. There are a few abrasions scattered about but none important enough to draw singular attention to. (NGC ID# 2648, PCGS# 8634)
