    1843-O Eagle, MS62
    CAC Approval, Only One Coin Finer
    Once-in-a-Decade Offering

    1843-O $10 MS62 NGC. CAC. Variety 4. Eagle production at New Orleans continued to grow exponentially in 1843, a result of increased deposits from domestic mines. A total of 175,162 ten dollar gold coins were struck that year, an increase of 540% over the 1842 mintage. The 1843-O is moderately accessible in general but extremely rare in mint condition. Probably only eight to 12 examples survive in MS60 or higher, and there is only one finer example known -- the Ronald W. Brown Acadiana Collection coin in MS64.

    A few isolated coppery alloy spots appear over light straw-gold surfaces. Strike characteristics are exceptional, as the 1843-O is typically regarded as a poorly produced issue, but the motifs are essentially fully brought-up on this piece. Mint luster is vibrant throughout. There are marks peppered over each side, but the only singular abrasion on this CAC-endorsed Condition Census offering occurs above the eagle's head. A hint of reflectivity in the fields is undeniable. Census: 3 in 62, 1 finer. CAC: 1 in 62, 0 finer (1/18).
