    1866 Motto Ten, MS61+
    Second Finest Certified

    1866 $10 MS61+ NGC. The 1866 With Motto eagle is a scarce issue in all grades; it is decidedly rare in XF and AU, and Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth note that it is "almost impossible to find" in Mint State. NGC has encapsulated six pieces as Uncirculated, including two MS60 coins, three MS61 pieces (1 in 61+), and a sole Choice example, although these numbers may include one or more resubmissions; PCGS has not certified any finer than AU58 (12/14). Due to the Plus designation, the MS61 coin here offered sufficiently ranks as the second finest known. The strike is sharp and the surfaces display warm straw-gold luster. Noticeable semiprooflike mirroring in the fields delivers excellent eye appeal and the surfaces reveal only minor abrasions for the grade. An important rarity and a very attractive coin.(Registry values: N7079)
