    Eye-Appealing 1842-O Eagle, Choice AU

    1842-O $10 AU55 NGC. Although the O-mint eagle production in 1842 increased dramatically over that of 1841, both issues are elusive in high grade, the 1841-O more so. New Orleans, or the Crescent City, was a major commercial hub in antebellum America; the first eagles struck at the her mint appear to have circulated far and wide. The recovery of the S.S. Republic, however, did add a few AU examples of the 1842-O to the totals. While the present coin is unidentified as such, it might well be one of the S.S. Republic coins. The lemon-yellow surfaces with glints of jade and lilac offer excellent luster with a bold strike that shows only minor weakness on Liberty's hair curls. A few minor abrasions are undistracting, and the eye appeal is great. Census: 31 in 55, 23 finer (3/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 262N, PCGS# 8587)
