    1874-S Ten Dollar, AU53
    Attractive, Original Surfaces

    1874-S $10 AU53 PCGS. Only 10,000 examples of this issue were struck, and while the 1874-S is reasonably available in grades through AU50, it is a scarce issue in finer condition. The 1874-S is rare in AU58, and it appears to be unique in Uncirculated with only a single MS61 coin recorded by PCGS (12/19).

    Just two PCGS-certified AU53 1874-S eagles have appeared for sale at auction: this coin (see below for its pedigree) and a choice CAC-approved piece that brought $7,200 in the ANA Auction (Stack's Bowers, 8/2018), lot 4240. Faint orange toning appears in the fields and on the devices, with light yellow mint luster in the protected areas around the design elements, showing traces of reflectivity. Both sides show the usual light, scattered marks expected for the grade.

    In our opinion, many of the San Francisco eagles from 1866 through the late 1870s are underappreciated and represent excellent values at current price levels.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2013), lot 7354, where it brought $5,288.
