    Near-Mint 1839 Eagle, Type of 1838
    In-Demand, Two-Year Type Coin

    1839 $10 Type of 1838, Large Letters AU58 NGC. The 1839, Type of 1838 eagle has a reported mintage of 25,801 pieces, large for the series but small in absolute terms. The design was modified during the year, subtly changing Liberty's hair style and the shape of the bust. The 1839, Type of 1838 is thus the last date of a two-year subtype and enjoys great popularity with type collectors. Few Mint State examples have survived; AU58 specimens are also quite rare.
    The present coin is a pleasing near-Mint example, with sharp strike details on the central obverse devices and just a touch of softness on the stars. The reverse is sharp throughout. The attractive greenish-gold surfaces retain much of their original mint luster. A scattering of minor handling marks on both sides is consistent with the grade. Census: 26 in 58, 10 finer (6/10).
    From The Dr. and Mrs. Claude Davis Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 262E, PCGS# 8576)
