    Description

    1856-O Ten Dollar, AU50
    Strong Central Detail

    1856-O $10 AU50 NGC. Variety 2. Die rust around LIBERTY and the placement of the mintmark almost entirely below the leaf tip confirm the rare die variety. The 1856-O eagle is far more collectible than its famous double eagle cousin, but Doug Winter estimates only 100 to 125 pieces survive. Yellow-gold surfaces exhibit a brush of friction over the high points, but central detail remains strong for a New Orleans gold product. Abrasions are minimal.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 263R, PCGS# 8620)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
