Description:
1852 Assay Office Eagle, MS62
K-12a, Middle Die State
1852 $10 Assay Office Ten Dollar MS62 NGC. K-12a, R.4. The 1852 U.S. Assay Office took over the operations of Moffat & Co. after that firm was dissolved in 1852, and the Assay Office issued ten dollar gold coins in 1852 and 1853 before the U.S. Mint opened in 1854. The 1852-dated .884 fine coins are seen more frequently than their 1853-dated counterparts, which come in .884 and .900 fineness. This MS62 1852 Assay Office ten is the K-12a variant showing the O in OFFICE under N of UNITED; the other K-12 variant, with O under I, is exceedingly rare. The dentilation is much stronger on the obverse than on the reverse, but there are only minor marks for the assigned grade. Golden-orange surfaces show some wispy die cracks on each side, evidence of die fatigue. Listed on page 379 of the 2013 Guide Book. Census: 11 in 62, 6 finer (3/13). Census: 11 in 62, 6 finer (3/13). (PCGS# 10001)

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.
