    1856-O Ten Dollar, AU55
    Scarce in High Grade

    1856-O $10 AU55 NGC. Variety 3. The decline of California gold deposits at the New Orleans Mint after the San Francisco Mint became operational in 1854, is evident in the small 14,500-coin mintage of the 1856-O eagle. The date is scarce in high AU grades, and Mint State coins are rare. This Choice AU representative displays a bold strike and reflective yellow-gold fields. Scattered contact marks are consistent with the grade. Census: 24 in 55 (1 in 55+ ), 21 finer (10/16).

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
