Description

    1859-O Ten Dollar, AU55
    One of the Foremost Rarities in the Series

    1859-O $10 AU55 NGC. The 1859-O is the rarest O-mint No Motto eagle and is also one of the most elusive coins in the entire denomination from 1795 to 1933. Just 2,300 pieces were struck and surviving examples represent only about 2 percent of the original production. Only one Mint State piece has been certified, a single MS62 at NGC; otherwise the second highest grade is AU58 (only four of those have been graded between the two services). This piece is original and uncleaned with coppery patina outlining the devices. The surfaces on this Condition Census representative display only the normal scattered marks in the fields from circulation. The radial details on the stars are virtually all flat, but elsewhere the coin is well-defined, which seems to be characteristic of the few examples we have handled. A great opportunity for the collector of Southern gold. Census: 5 in 55, 2 finer (1/14).
