    1870-S Liberty Eagle, AU58
    Only One Finer Coin at PCGS

    1870-S $10 AU58 PCGS. The 1870-S Liberty eagle is a very rare issue, especially in high grade. It is comparable in rarity to the 1868-S, and like that issue, it is extremely elusive in grades above XF with the majority of survivors only grading VF. Only 8,000 pieces were minted and perhaps half a dozen or so are believed to exist today in AU condition with only one Mint State coin believed extant today. This is an especially sharp piece that is well defined with bright orange-gold surfaces and a semi-prooflike glimmer in the fields. Slightly abraded, there is a distinctive, angling grease stain across the upper shield on the reverse that should serve as a useful pedigree identifier. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 2 in 58, 1 finer (2/14).
