    Description

    1855-S Eagle, AU53
    Low Mintage

    1855-S $10 AU53 PCGS. As the San Francisco Mint embarked on its first full year of coinage production after opening for business the previous April, production of double eagles occupied much of the time and effort at that facility. Just 9,000 eagles were minted during the year, all minted during the third quarter. Housed in a green-label PCGS holder, this lovely example has considerable remaining luster with scattered, grade-consistent marks and rich honey-gold surfaces. This issue is unknown in Mint State grades. Population: 9 in 53, 2 finer (1/18).
    From The Admiral Collection. (Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 263N, PCGS# 8618)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    Had we endeavored to sell it without your support, it would have taken us at least 10 lifetimes, i.e. it would have been impossible.
