    Description

    Condition Census 1860-S Eagle

    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 (11/97), only one other AU 50 has been certified and the finest graded are an AU 53 from PCGS and an AU 55 from NGC. 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.

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

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
