Description

Glowing 1872 Eagle

1872 AU 50 NGC. Extremely rare in all grades, the 1872 eagle is of great importance to collectors of this popular series. Its original mintage of only 1,650 pieces and subsequent unavailability in all grades elevates it to a level of rarity along with other famous issues, such as the 1858, 1863, 1876, and 1877. Only the 1875 and 1873 are unquestionably rarer. At the AU 50 level, this falls just outside the Condition Census. The surfaces of this coin are peppered with tiny marks, therefore subduing the considerable reflectivity seen in the fields. Rich green-gold color is evident, and the coin is reasonably well struck throughout. (NGC ID# 264Z, PCGS# 8663)
