    1873 Eagle Rarity, One of only 800 Business Strikes Produced

    1873 $10 Closed 3 AU50 PCGS. After the 1875, the 1873 is the rarest P-mint issue in the Liberty Eagle series. In fact, the '73 is among the five or six rarest dates in this long lived series. Both major grading services have graded only 25 coins in all grades, as follows: one in VF, 11 in XF, 12 in AU, and one in MS60 (5/01). A well struck coin, this AU representative retains sharp definition in all areas except over Liberty's hair curls. We stress, however, that even the central obverse is bold, and traces of a prooflike finish are evident as the coin rotates beneath the light. Small handling marks are peppered across both sides, a diagonal abrasion on Liberty's portrait is the most readily identifiable pedigree marker. We have not offered an AU example of this issue since our January 1999 FUN Signature Sale. That coin, an Uncertified AU53 representative, appeared as lot 5741 and sold for $16,100.
    From the Richard Genaitis Collection. (NGC ID# 2654, PCGS# 8666)

    I popped open one of the beers, put my boots up on the desk, turned up the volume on my monitor and followed my watch list and while I was outbid on my proof Walkers I got a winning bid on a 67+ CAC BTW. Shoot, anniversaries don't come much better than t
