Description

Underappreciated Near-Mint 1878-S Ten

1878-S $10 AU58 PCGS. CAC. In his once-seminal 1980 reference to the ten dollar series, David W. Akers wrote, "I can think of no U.S. gold coin of comparable rarity that has been more ignored and lightly regarded than the 1878-S eagle." Thirty years have passed, but the 1878-S remains rare and underappreciated, particularly on the cusp of Mint State. This is a sharply struck and partially lustrous pumpkin-gold Borderline Uncirculated example that lacks any mentionable marks. Population: 5 in 58, 1 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 265L, PCGS# 8682)
