Description

Rare, Low Mintage 1863-S Ten, AU55
One of the Finest Known

1863-S $10 AU55 NGC. The 1863-S is even rarer than suggested by its production of 10,000 pieces. It is also a condition rarity, most likely because of the general unawareness of mintmarked coins and their relative scarcity until the 1893 publication by Augustus Heaton of his groundbreaking work Treatise on Coinage of the United States Branch Mints. By then, most of the remaining 1863-S tens were well-worn. Today, VF-XF coins are usually all that are encountered with AU pieces such as this among the finest examples available. NGC has certified only 32 pieces in all grades, including three recovered in recent years from the S.S. Republic. NGC has yet to certify any pieces as Mint State. The present example is lustrous for the grade, and is sharply struck save for moderate bluntness on the eagle's neck. Census: 2 in 55, 3 finer (10/07).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 264C, PCGS# 8638)
