Description

A Second AU 55 1876 Ten-Dollar

1876 AU 55 NGC. A second example of this important rarity in the ten-dollar Liberty series. Tied with the previous lot for finest certified, and we would assume also tied for finest known. The fields on this piece are nowhere near as reflective as they are on the previous lot, yet they do show a bright, semi-prooflike glimmer. Well struck but not showing quite full detailing, with just a bit of highpoint definition missing on the hair curl over Liberty's ear. The surfaces show a bright yellow-gold color with a few more obvious abrasions scattered about. The most noticeable marks for tracing the pedigree of this important coin are: a long scratch along the baseline of the truncation of the neck, three short nicks in the left obverse field in front of the neck, and a nick in front of the nose on the obverse. A very rare opportunity to select between two examples of this very rare, key issue. (NGC ID# 265C, PCGS# 8674)
