    1859-O Liberty Eagle, AU55
    Most Elusive No Motto O-Mint Ten

    1859-O $10 AU55 NGC. Variety 1. Only 2,300 Liberty eagles were struck at the New Orleans Mint in 1859, and none of them were saved for numismatic purposes. As a result, the 1859-O is the rarest No Motto Liberty eagle from the New Orleans Mint. Probably no more than 45-55 examples survive today in all grades. Most examples seen are in the VF-XF grade range and only one coin has been certified in Mint State at either of the leading grading services.

    The present coin is a lightly circulated example that shows a trace of friction on the high points of the well-detailed design elements. The bright orange-gold surfaces are lightly abraded and retain traces of original mint luster. Census: 5 in 55, 2 finer (3/14).
    From The Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2642, PCGS# 8629)
