    1860-S Ten Dollar, AU58
    Ex: S.S. Republic, Condition Rarity

    1860-S $10 AU58 NGC. Ex: S.S. Republic. The population reports confirm the rarity of this San Francisco eagle, with PCGS reporting one Mint State examples, and just two pieces in AU58 condition; NGC lists one piece in MS62, another in MS61, and five AU58 examples (4/20). The top NGC listings may include other S.S. Republic survivors, because four examples of this rare date were recovered from the wreck.

    The current coin is somewhat abraded, as though it was a circulated coin before the ship sank. It acquired the typical yellow-gold patina and satiny luster typical of most seawater coins, although the surfaces do not show a mattelike finish the way some recovery coins do. This high-grade ten would fit nicely within any top-shelf set. This lot includes a certificate of authenticity, informative DVD, and a custom wood presentation box.(Registry values: N7079)

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

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
