Description:
Conditionally Rare 1878-S Ten Dollar, MS60 NGC
1878-S $10 MS60 NGC. Similar in overall rarity to the 1876-S and 1877-S, the 1878-S is one of numerous unsung condition rarities in the long-lived Liberty Eagle series. Only 26,100 pieces were originally produced, a mere six survivors of which have been certified in Mint State at NGC and PCGS combined (4/05). This sharply impressed, crisply detailed representative exhibits the small S mintmark that is common to all '78-S Eagles. Both sides are richly colored in orange-gold hues with a mostly frosty texture that thins to modest brightness at a few angles. There are a typical amount of small and medium sized abrasions for the MS60 level of preservation. While not as well known as many of the CC-mint Liberty Eagle rarities, this coin is no less of a highlight that represents an important bidding opportunity for the astute specialist.(#8682) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 265L, PCGS# 8682)
