    1845-O Ten Dollar, MS62
    Likely Second Finest Known
    First Time Offered at Public Auction

    1845-O $10 Repunched Date MS62 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1. The 1845-O is easily obtained in grades through AU53 but it is scarce in AU55 and AU58, especially with original color and choice surfaces. In Uncirculated, this is a rare coin with only seven or eight pieces extant. The finest known is clearly the glorious PCGS/CAC MS64 in the New England Collection, which has an enviable Clapp-Eliasberg-Bass pedigree and an unbroken provenance going back to 1890. The Jacobson coin is likely the second finest known. There is another example graded MS62 by PCGS but, in our opinion, it is not as choice as the present piece. The surfaces display lemon-yellow centers with deeper rose color around the margins. The lustrous surfaces are surprisingly free from the usual heavy abrasions encountered on this issue.

    This remarkable coin has never been offered for sale at auction and it was acquired by Mr. Jacobson from an eastern dealer. It is interesting to note that an NGC MS62 1845-O eagle recovered from the S.S. New York was auctioned by Stack's in July 2008 and sold for $54,625. Serious collectors of New Orleans eagles will be well aware of the significance of this impressive 1845-O ten dollar.
    From The Harvey B. Jacobson, Jr. Collection of Liberty Eagles.
