    Finest Certified 1852 Liberty No Motto Eagle MS65

    1852 $10 MS65 PCGS. Where does one start when they have just seen one of the nicest No Motto Eagles in existence? This mesmerizing 1852 Ten Dollar comes from a comparatively high original mintage of 263,106 pieces, but important gold collections have been known to contain nothing higher than an AU example and even an average Mint State representative is legitimately scarce. Perhaps the best way to illustrate the importance of this offering is cite census data for the issue. A total of 42 coins have been certified MS60 or better by the two major grading services, a figure that probably includes at least 8 to 10 resubmissions. Of this total, a mere 17 pieces qualified at the MS62 level and above that just one coin achieved a higher grade, this amazing MS65.
    Endowed with a needle sharp strike and bountiful, billowy luster, the surfaces have acquired a touch of reddish patina overall along with tinges of olive at the margins. A few discreet blemishes in the left obverse field barely graze the satiny luster, and a relatively inoffensive mark on Liberty's neck is perhaps the only mentionable distraction. Picking a favorite coin from the star-studded Gold Rush Collection is arguably an impossible task, but this amazing 1852 Eagle, the finest certified by three points, certainly makes the final cut. Population: 1 in 65, 0 finer (12/04).
