    1842-O Ten Dollar, Choice AU
    Challenging New Orleans Issue

    1842-O $10 AU55 PCGS. Variety 1. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth explain that while the New Orleans Mint increased ten dollar gold output by more than 10 times between 1841 and 1842, the latter's survivorship is not correspondingly high. The 1842-O is a scarce date overall that becomes decidedly rare in Choice AU and finer. Uncirculated coins are extremely rare. A mix of yellow and khaki-gold color graces lightly abraded, still-lustrous surfaces. The relief elements show strike detail typical of the Southern branch mint. Population: 12 in 55, 8 finer (11/15).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 262N, PCGS# 8587)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
