    Low-Mintage 1859-S Eagle, AU53

    1859-S $10 AU53 NGC. An often-overlooked Old West classic, this San Francisco eagle issue was struck just a few years after that city's Mint opened. Production of non-double eagle gold issues lagged in the early S-mint years; the 1859-S eagle, for example, saw production of just 7,000 pieces, and AU survivors are condition rarities. This AU53 piece is pale and radiant despite light wear. Striking softness on the obverse stars is typical, though the interiors offer better detail. Several long abrasions on and to the left of the portrait are grade-consistent but preclude a Choice AU designation. Census: 5 in 53, 5 finer (6/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2643, PCGS# 8630)
