    Very Rare AU 53 1863 Ten Dollar

    1863 AU 53 PCGS. The 1863 is a very rare No Motto ten, as one would expect from a mintage of only 1,268 pieces. This is only the third example we have handled in the past six years. Generally only seen in VF and XF condition, AU pieces are quite elusive. If one uses the population data from the major services this appears to be a lower Condition Census coin, possibly the fourth finest known. Just a bit softly defined over the highpoints, the fields show a bright remnant of the original prooflike finish around the devices. There are three notable alloy spots that can be used as identifiers for pedigree purposes: one is located at 2 o'clock on the obverse rim, and the other is positioned at 7 o'clock over the reverse rim with another, larger spot covering the bottom of the D in UNITED. A rare opportunity for the collector of rare U.S. gold. (NGC ID# 264B, PCGS# 8637)
