    1866-S Motto Ten Dollar, Choice XF
    11,500 Coins Struck, 60 to 80 Survivors

    1866-S $10 Motto XF45 NGC. The San Francisco Mint struck No Motto and Motto eagles in 1866. Slightly more examples were produced with IN GOD WE TRUST above the eagle than without (11,500 vs. 8,500 coins), and survivors are proportionally more available than their No Motto counterparts. That said, only 60 to 80 pieces are believed extant. Deep sun-gold surfaces maintain flashes of luster in the fields on both sides of this well-defined Choice XF ten dollar gold coin. Myriad abrasions are peppered throughout. Census: 10 in 45, 24 finer (7/16).
    From The Twelve Oaks Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 53FR, PCGS# 8650)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
