Top Quality 1862-S Liberty Eagle, AU53 PCGS

1862-S $10 AU53 PCGS. A very rare coin in any grade, a fact only hinted at by the original mintage of 12,500 pieces. This low mintage, coupled with an extremely low survival rate, make high grade pieces very elusive. In this case "high grade" means XF. This coin seems to be the one of finest known, as there are apparently no Mint State survivors known today. Characteristically weakly struck as an issue, this example is uniformly soft over the highpoints. Rich orange-gold color throughout, there are small portions of mint luster still to be seen surrounding the devices on each side. Lightly to moderately abraded, particularly over the obverse. Population: 3 in 53, 4 finer (9/04).
From The Greg and Lesia Hosch Collection.(#8636) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 55H4, PCGS# 8636)
