    1859-S Eagle, AU Details
    Just 7,000 Pieces Struck

    1859-S $10 -- Rim Filing -- NGC Details. AU. Except during 1875, the San Francisco Mint struck gold eagles every year between 1854, the first year of the facility, and 1889. But a majority of issues had low mintages, unlike their double eagle counterparts. The 1859-S ten had a production of only 7,000 pieces, a slender fraction of the 646,445 S-mint twenties coined that year. Collector interest in mintmarked high denomination Liberty gold was minimal prior to the 1890s, and today, the finest-graded 1859-S ten dollar survivor is in an NGC MS60 holder. The present example is lightly circulated, but the mildly glossy butter-gold surfaces display relatively few marks. The rim filing is subtle and would be overlooked by most collectors.(Registry values: N4719)

    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.
