    1857-S Ten Dollar, AU53
    CAC Approved

    1857-S $10 AU53 PCGS. CAC. Because so many coins were located on the S.S. Central America, the 1857-S is the most available No Motto eagle from San Francisco in higher grades, but it is more difficult to locate from the perspective of overall rarity than many casual collectors believe.

    Just over 100 examples of this issue exist in all grades with most either graded AU50 and below or AU58 and above. Curiously, PCGS has graded very few pieces in AU53 (just four currently), and the present population of 13 examples in AU55 is likely made higher by resubmissions.

    This original reddish-gold example shows a few more noticeable marks from its time in circulation, but significant mint luster remains around the devices. This is a nice example and an affordable coin that represents good value for the date.
