Description:
Historic 1883-O Ten Dollar, AU55
One of 800 Pieces Minted
1883-O $10 AU55 NGC. Doug Winter gives the 1883-O eagle a memorable introduction in his Gold Coins of the New Orleans Mint:

"The 1883-O eagle is an issue that can best be described with a glowing list of superlatives. It is the rarest New Orleans eagle and is among the rarest New Orleans gold coins of any denomination. It has the lowest mintage figure of any branch mint Liberty Head eagle and only two Philadelphia issues (the 1875 and 1876) have lower mintage figures than the 1883-O. Despite this issue's unquestionable rarity, it still does not receive the acclaim it deserves."


The knowledgeable collector will find plenty of reasons to cheer for this Choice AU example. Immensely lustrous sun-gold surfaces show prominent rose overtones in the fields surrounding the devices, and the well struck devices show only minor wear. A few small digs are noted off the truncation of the bust. Census: 2 in 55, 5 finer (11/10).
