    1839 Eagle, AU53
    Type of 1840, Small Letters

    1839 $10 Type of 1840, Small Letters AU53 NGC. Christian Gobrecht's Liberty head was modified in 1839 to a smoother bust line, with other minor differences, and that revision served the series until 1907. The new reverse features smaller legend letters. Several obverse die cracks suggest that this may have been one of the last pieces struck from the mintage of 12,447 coins. This important condition rarity represents an issue with an average grade of just 40. This still lustrous green-gold specimen has myriad surface marks with a few rim marks and other trivial blemishes. Census: 5 in 53, 14 finer (3/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 262F, PCGS# 8580)
