Impressive Choice AU 1865 Eagle

1865 $10 AU55 PCGS. Ex: Bass. Formerly sold as lot 657 in Bass III, where it was described as, "Another great rarity in the Liberty eagle series, although its fame is known mainly to ardent specialists in the series. From a slight business strike mintage for the date of just 3,980 coins; today, we suspect just 50 or so specimens remain in all grades. At VF the date is rare, with EF and higher specimens being of the utmost rarity. The present coin, at AU-55, is among the finest known examples of the date...(This surfaces of this piece are) lustrous orange-gold with prooflike reflectivity and lively rose iridescence. A scattering of tiny marks is readily apparent under low magnification. Truly a splendid opportunity for advanced eagle specialists."
Purchased from Stanley Kesselman, February 23, 1968. (NGC ID# 264F, PCGS# 8641)
