1862 Liberty Head Ten, AU55
Low-Mintage Date

1862 $10 AU55 PCGS. Only 10,960 business-strike Liberty Head eagles were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1862, the second year of the Civil War. Survivors in Choice AU condition are quite rare in today's market. The last auction sale of a PCGS graded AU55 specimen took place in 1999, while an NGC graded AU58 coin was sold by Stack's for $25,300 in August 2010. The present coin is sharply detailed in most areas, with a touch of softness on some of the stars. The surfaces are an attractive greenish-gold, with hints of orange, and many areas of prooflike reflectivity. Population: 10 in 55, 5 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 2649, PCGS# 8635)
