Description:
Desirable AU53 1852 Assay Office
Ten Dollar, K-12a
1852 $10 Assay Office Ten Dollar AU53 NGC. K-12a, R.5. Early and late die states exist with bold or faint beads in the reverse border. This example is the late die state, which is identified as K-12a(2) and is slightly more plentiful. The surfaces are somewhat abraded as usual for these coins, with bright green-gold and faint peripheral orange toning. The United States Assay Office pieces were struck after John Moffat retired, and Curtis, Perry, and Ward reorganized the operation, continuing to operate under government authority until the San Francisco Mint opened in 1854. Listed on page 365 of the 2010 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10001)
