Description

Choice AU 1871-S Ten Dollar
Low Survival Rate

1871-S $10 AU55 NGC. At 16,500 pieces, the 1871-S eagle has a respectable mintage for its era and denomination, but its survival rate is anomalously low, according to Garrett and Guth: "The 1871-S eagle is a very scarce date despite a mintage that might hint otherwise. ... Extremely Fine examples are the easiest to obtain, but About Uncirculated examples become very rare." This Choice AU representative shows plain rub on the high points and scattered light to moderate marks, yet the yellow-gold surfaces remain immensely lustrous, particularly on the bright reverse. Well struck for the time and an important selection for the collector of S-mint Liberty tens. Census: 13 in 55, 7 finer (5/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 264Y, PCGS# 8662)
