The Finest Known 1883-O Eagle

1883-O AU 58 PCGS. This is the finest known 1883-O ten-dollar. It is listed as the #1 coin on the Doug Winters condition census with the mention that it "was evidently found in a Savannah, Georgia collection and was later sold by a New York dealer to another collector. It may possibly be the Golden I:2738 coin." The New York dealer was Winthrop Carner and the collector he sold the piece to was Warren Miller. The surfaces overall are bright, and the fields are prooflike, giving the piece an element of eye appeal missing from most of the '83-O tens extant. The striking details are well defined in the centers, with the usual flatness seen on the peripheral stars. A small mark is noted on the jawline of Liberty, and another nick is seen in the upper obverse field at the tip of the coronet. Rich golden-orange color covers both sides of this amazing rarity. Only 30-35 pieces are believed to exist in all grades, and while one piece was sold in 1962 as uncirculated (the Golden I piece mentioned above), it is doubtful that any of this issue exist today in strictly uncirculated condition. Like the AU 50 piece above, this coin was also struck from the "Tilting Left" reverse die. (NGC ID# 2668, PCGS# 8701)

Learn about consigning with us

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
