Description

Mid-Condition Census 1868-S Eagle

1868-S AU 50 PCGS. "Better than EF, it is unknown to the best of my knowledge." That was how Dave Akers described the 1868-S in his comprehensive survey of ten-dollar gold pieces. This is a solid AU coin and a mid-condition census example. A mere 13,500 pieces were struck and only a couple of handfuls survive today in all grades. This coin has bright underlying surfaces beneath a light ruddy overlay of patina that covers both sides and darkens considerably around the peripheral devices. Good portions of mint luster remain, especially in the more protected areas of the devices. Noticeably abraded, the most obvious marks are on the obverse with a pair of scratches between stars 5 and 6, and a nick to the right of star 6. A bit softly struck, but uniformly so throughout.
Ex: Stetson University Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/93), lot 2056. (NGC ID# 264P, PCGS# 8654)
