    Extremely Scarce 1872 Eagle AU50 NGC

    1872 $10 AU50 NGC. Extremely scarce in all grades, the 1872 eagle is of great importance to collectors of this popular series. Its original mintage of only 1,650 pieces, and subsequent unavailability in all grades, elevates it to a level of rarity along with other famous issues, such as the 1858, 1863, 1876, and 1877. Only the 1875 and 1873 are unquestionably rarer. At the AU50 level, only eight examples of this issue have been certified by the two major services combined, with a total of thirteen pieces graded finer (4/03). The surfaces of this coin are rather extensively marked, therefore subduing the considerable reflectivity seen in the fields. Rich green-gold color is evident, and the coin is reasonably well struck throughout. (NGC ID# 264Z, PCGS# 8663)
