Description:
One of the Finest Known 1882-O Eagles
1882-O $10 MS 60 PCGS. Well struck and frosty, the obverse displays deep orange-gold and steel-blue patination. While the reverse is equally well executed, the similar colors are markedly more extensive. Were it not for a few unobtrusive scratches in the right obverse field, this coin would probably net an MS 62 designation. Despite its shortcomings, however, this is easily the best example of this date we have seen and it is a strong candidate for finest known honors.
The 1882-O is slightly more scarce than the 1880-O. In higher circulated grades, it is the most available of the 1880-1882 eagles. This assessment shifts to scarce when one crosses into the Choice AU grade levels and becomes prohibitively rare in Mint State. Of the six to eight known Uncirculated survivors, nearly all of these fall into the MS 60 or MS 61 grade tiers.
From the Ronald W. Brown Acadiana Collection; Ex: Auction '82 (Stack's, 8/82), lot 397, where it realized $2,100; and Auction '84 (Stack's, 7/84), lot 1457. (NGC ID# 2664, PCGS# 8697)
