    1860-S Liberty Ten, AU55
    One Finer Coin at PCGS

    1860-S $10 AU55 PCGS. The San Francisco Mint concentrated on double eagle production in the 1860s and mintages of Liberty eagles were uniformly small during this period. The 1860-S ten claims a tiny production total of 5,000 pieces and few examples were saved for numismatic purposes. The issue was unknown in Mint State until a couple of Uncirculated specimens were recovered from the wreck of the S.S. Republic.

    This impressive Choice AU example offers well-detailed design elements with some light traces of wear on the high points. The vivid orange-gold surfaces show reddish highlights and prooflike reflectivity clings to the devices. Only minor abrasions are present and eye appeal is strong for the grade. Population: 4 in 55, 1 finer (2/14).
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2646, PCGS# 8632)

    Weight: 16.72 grams
