    1860-S Ten Dollar, AU Sharpness
    Paltry Production of 5,000 Coins

    1860-S $10 -- Cleaning -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. Secure. Perhaps 35 to 45 1860-S ten dollar gold coin survive from an original mintage of 5,000 pieces. There are only two Mint State examples believed known, and the certification services report most representatives between VF20 and AU55. Auction appearance prove to be few and far between, averaging roughly one or two a year. The surfaces of this well-detailed 1860-S eagle are overly bright but not subdued from cleaning, as one would expect. Examples typically show poorly struck stars and centers, though such is not the case here. Crisply defined motifs exhibit a trace of friction. Minute marks are peppered over each side, but the fields are generally smooth. An extremely challenging No Motto issue with few sharper examples reported.
