    1844-O Ten Dollar, MS61
    Conditionally Rare
    S.S. New York

    1844-O $10 MS61 NGC. Variety 1. Ex: S.S. New York. The upper loupe of a misplaced digit is evident in the dentils beneath the primary 8 in the date on this variety. The mintmark leans slightly left and is over the space between the EN in TEN. The 1844-O Liberty eagle is a tremendous rarity in Mint State. Much of the high-grade population is composed of coins from shipwreck recoveries, such as the S.S. Republic. The present coin is from the S.S. New York. The visual appeal is finer than typically seen at the MS61 grade level, boosted by vibrant yellow-gold luster and impressively sharp definition. There is no trace of wear, and abrasions are minimal -- it is mainly some light hairline scratches in the obverse fields that prevent a finer grade. New Orleans gold in this condition is inherently rare. Census: 5 in 61, 4 finer (4/20).
