    Superior 1860-S Eagle--Tied For Second Finest Known

    1860-S AU 50 PCGS. A major rarity in the Coronet series of tens. The original mintage was a paltry 5,000 pieces, and of the few survivors known today almost all are clustered in the VF-XF grade range. According to the most recent data from the grading services (7/95), only one other AU 50 has been certified and the finest graded is AU 53. This is a fine looking example that has rich orange-gold color and faint traces of an original prooflike surface outlining the devices. Well struck overall with only slight softness noted on the hair curl above Liberty's ear and on some of the stars. Minimally abraded, the most notable marks are a tiny nick above star 1, a faint copper stain by star 5, and a shallow scratch between stars 10 and 11.
    Ex: Stack's (3/90), lot 1195.

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

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
