    Mint State 1839 Ten Dollar
    Type of 1838 Obverse

    1839 $10 Type of 1838, Large Letters MS60 NGC. The so-called "Type of 1838," an obverse design that features a prominent hair curl sweeping down and concealing Liberty's ear, appears on just two ten dollar dates, 1838 and 1839. Of the two, the 1839 with Type of 1838 is more accessible and more frequently used for type purposes. This Mint State example shows no trace of wear on yellow-gold surfaces, though the devices and fields are equally abraded. The piece is decently struck in the centers but significantly weak on most of the obverse stars. Nonetheless, as a Mint State Type of 1838 eagle, this coin commands plenty of respect and will command an accordingly high price. Census: 5 in 60, 7 finer (5/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 262E, PCGS# 8576)
