    1859-S Eagle, AU50
    Great Eye Appeal

    1859-S $10 AU50 NGC. Large S mintmark, as always seen on this low-mintage issue of 7,000 coins, most of which circulated extensively in the pre-Civil War West of the late 1850s-early 1860s.

    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2643, PCGS# 8630)
