    Rare Mint State 1859 Eagle, MS61 NGC

    1859 $10 MS61 NGC. The 1859 is a rare date in all grades and is considered by Breen to be "prohibitively rare (in) BU." Only 16,093 pieces were struck. This is the single finest example we have offered since we began keeping auction archive records. The surfaces are totally original and display a deep, even, golden-orange patina with pink accents on the highpoints of the devices. The original, reflective mint luster can still be seen around and within the protected areas of the design. Well struck in the centers, but as usual, showing softness of strike on the peripheral stars. While there are a number of field marks on each side, it would be difficult to single one out as more distinctive than another. Population: 2 in 61, 4 finer (4/03). (NGC ID# 263Z, PCGS# 8628)
