Exceptionally Rare 1866-S Liberty Eagle AU50 NGC1866-S $10 Motto AU50 NGC. An exceptionally rare and valuable Liberty Eagle. In Akers' auction survey, conducted several years ago, this issue was tied with several others for seventh place in rarity, according to average grade, and it ranked in the top 25 percent of the series in overall rarity. To date, not a single piece has been certified in Mint State, by either of the major grading services.
This example is bright overall with portions of remaining luster around the devices. The striking details are a bit weak, with the peripheral stars showing the least definition. There are a number of small to moderate-sized abrasions, seen mostly on the reverse. Population: 14 in 50, 16 finer (6/05).(#8650)(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 53FR, PCGS# 8650)
