    1866-S No Motto Eagle, MS60
    First Appearance in Mint State
    Very Rare in All Grades, Finest Certified

    1866-S $10 No Motto MS60 NGC. All 8,500 1866-S No Motto eagles were struck in February before new dies with the added motto IN GOD WE TRUST were received from the Philadelphia Mint. These coins are much rarer than their With Motto counterparts and are seen about one-fourth to one-fifth as often. There are perhaps 50 to 65 examples extant. This is the sole Uncirculated representative at the leading grading services. It is the first time a Mint State example has appeared at auction. Expect a record price to take this coin home.

    This lustrous, reddish-gold San Francisco eagle is well-struck for the issue. A couple of obverse stars lack radial lines, but the eagle is boldly rendered. No trace of wear is present. Ticks just left of the nose and below star 10 aid in attribution. Census: 1 in 60, 0 finer (1/18).
    From The Admiral Collection. (Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 264H, PCGS# 8644)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
