    1859-S Ten Dollar, AU Details
    Rare No Motto Issue

    1859-S $10 -- Reverse Rim Filed -- NGC Details. AU. The San Francisco ten dollar issues struck before 1879 are a parade of rarities. The 1859-S has a mintage of 7,000 pieces, but since none were saved by collectors, only 40 to 60 examples have survived, per PCGS. The present almond-gold ten has Choice AU luster and sharpness, and the eye appeal is considerable due to the generally unmarked fields and devices. However, the lower half of the reverse rim is filed.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
