    Description

    1861 Eagle, MS61
    The Logical Choice for a No Motto Type Coin

    1861 $10 MS61 PCGS. Bulging Bun subtype. The 1861 has the largest mintage of the decade, and is the logical choice for a No Motto type coin. Considering the grade, this piece shows remarkably few abrasions. The surfaces are warm, even, light reddish-gold and the strike is well brought-up throughout. Significant mint luster is intermixed with semiprooflikeness that was created by die polishing, remnants of which can be seen in the fields.
    From The Admiral Collection. (Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2647, PCGS# 8633)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
