    Choice AU 1839 Eagle, Type of 1838

    1839 $10 Type of 1838, Large Letters AU55 PCGS. This variety has been called many different things over the years, quite often by the Large Letters name from the reverse. Every example is described by PCGS as an 1839/8 Overdate, although others label these pieces as Normal Dates. It appears that the Normal Date coins are merely late die states of the overdate, and not a separate variety. This piece has subdued greenish yellow-gold surfaces with traces of reflectivity in the fields, especially where protected by the devices. A few tiny nicks and abrasions are consistent with the grade.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 262E, PCGS# 8576)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
