Description

Conditionally Rare 1866-S No Motto Ten Dollar

1866-S $10 No Motto AU55 NGC. This is one of only a few About Uncirculated representatives of this rare issue that we can remember handling. The bright yellow-gold features retain ample mint frost and bold striking definition, particularly over the focal features. Both sides are abraded from a short stint in circulation, but no more so than one should expect for the assigned grade. A lateral pinscratch is noted on the reverse from the eagle's neck between ER to the right rim. Breen (1988) describes this issue, produced to the extent of just 8,500 pieces, as "very rare." In his 1980 auction survey, Akers stated that the 1866-S No Motto was the rarest Liberty eagle, after only the 1864-S and 1875. Census: 7 in 55, 4 finer (8/06).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 264H, PCGS# 8644)
