1859-O Ten Dollar, AU55
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).

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.View More Testimonials
