    Description

    1864-S Eagle, XF45
    Low-Mintage Issue, Rare in All Grades

    1864-S $10 XF45 NGC. The 1864-S is an extremely rare Liberty Head ten that is even rarer than its mintage of 2,500 pieces would suggest. Breen estimates that only 10 to 12 coins are known. The PCGS website, however, estimates 22 to 26 known. The NGC and PCGS population reports show that the two services have certified a total of 29 examples, the finest an NGC AU55.

    The yellow-gold surfaces of this Choice XF specimen display traces of luster in the recessed areas. The design features are well-defined despite some high-point wear. Only the eagle's neck feathers are ill-defined, an area that was weakly struck on this issue. Tiny distributed marks are insignificant and in concert with the grade designation. This is an important opportunity for aficionados of Civil War-era gold coinage, as this issue infrequently appears at auction. Census: 3 in 45, 3 finer (11/13).
    From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 264E, PCGS# 8640)
