    1862 Liberty Eagle, MS61
    Low-Mintage Civil War Era Issue
    Ex:
    S.S. Republic

    1862 $10 MS61 PCGS. The 1862 Liberty eagle claims a low mintage of just 10,960 pieces, and high-grade specimens were almost impossible to locate before the recovery of the S.S. Republic. A small hoard surfaced when the famous shipwreck was salvaged, and most of the coins were in lower Mint State grades. The piece offered here features well-detailed design elements with a touch of softness on some of the stars. The brightly lustrous surfaces have an attractive greenish-gold tint, and a scattering of minor contact marks on both sides explains the grade. Population: 3 in 61, 5 finer (9/15).
    Ex: Rosemont Signature (Heritage, 8/2013, as MS61 NGC S.S. Republic), lot 5879.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2649, PCGS# 8635)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
