    Probable Finest Known 1878-S Ten Dollar, MS64

    1878-S $10 MS64 PCGS. The 1878-S eagle is a very elusive issue and it is generally unavailable in any grade, even though 26,100 pieces were struck. A couple of dozen AU pieces may exist today, but only a small handful (three have been certified) are believed extant today in Mint State. This piece is tied with another MS64, an NGC coin, but we have to wonder is this actually a second coin or a crossover? This is an astonishing coin from the viewpoint of strike, eye appeal, and overall preservation of surfaces. The devices are fully defined in all areas, and there are no noticeable abrasions on either side. The fields are prooflike and each side has an overlay of rich reddish patina that adds even more to the coin's overall attractiveness. A very rare and important S-mint ten and an offering that is unlikely to be repeated again anytime soon.(#8682) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 265L, PCGS# 8682)

    Had we endeavored to sell it without your support, it would have taken us at least 10 lifetimes, i.e. it would have been impossible.
