    AU50 Details 1839 Type of 1840 Eagle
    Small Letters Reverse

    1839 $10 Type of 1840, Small Letters--Cleaned--ANACS. AU50 Details. The year 1839 was a transitional one in the Liberty eagle series. The portrait of Liberty that the Mint introduced later in the year differed from that used in 1838 and early 1839, and it would remain in use through the end of the series in 1907. With only 12,447 pieces produced, the 1839 Type of 1840 is an understandably rare and coveted issue. This particular example is finer than the typically offered VF or XF survivor with pleasing medium gold color and a few whispers of original luster. Well struck, particularly in the centers, with die cracks around much of the obverse periphery. The remainder of the surfaces exhibit a subdued appearance as a result of the stated cleaning.
    Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 7/2006), lot 1390, which realized $3,737.50.
