    Elusive 1857 Ten Dollar, AU55 NGC

    1857 $10 AU55 NGC. One of the many 'sleepers' within the No Motto Liberty Eagle series, the 1857 has a mintage of just 16,606 pieces. Regarded by contemporary collectors as mere bullion, most of the issue went into circulation where it remained until the Civil War led to hoarding of all gold coins. Well struck except for the star centers and the hair above Liberty's ear. The surfaces display honey-gold patination, and traces of luster are found in the protected areas. The expected light contact marks are scattered over each side, but none are individually offensive. Since the issue is virtually unobtainable in Mint State, attractive AU examples such as the present piece combine value and rarity. Population: 15 in 55, 26 finer (6/05).(#8622)(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 263T, PCGS# 8622)
