    1859-O Liberty Eagle, AU50
    Elusive Low-Mintage Issue

    1859-O $10 AU50 PCGS. Variety 1. From a reported mintage of just 2,300 pieces, the 1859-O Liberty eagle is the rarest ten dollar gold coin from the New Orleans Mint. Probably no more than 45-55 examples survive today in all grades and the issue is quite rare at the AU50 level of preservation. This attractive AU specimen displays lightly abraded orange-gold surfaces that show highlights of green and retain much original mint luster. The design elements were strongly impressed and show just a touch of wear on the high points. Public offerings are few and far between so the series specialist should bid accordingly. Population: 8 in 50, 11 finer (10/13).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2642, PCGS# 8629)
