    1858-O Ten Dollar, MS63
    Exceptional Coin and Approved by CAC

    1858-O $10 MS63 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1. The 1858-O is the second most available New Orleans eagle from the 1850s, but it is rare in Uncirculated with only nine to 12 pieces currently known. A number of these coins were located in the little-known but highly important Jackson, Tennessee hoard found in 1985. That is, in all likelihood, where this piece came from.

    Harvey Jacobson purchased this coin via private treaty at the 2012 ANA and it has never appeared at auction. It is the single finest piece graded at PCGS and the only other coin that is comparable is an NGC MS63 Prooflike in the Tyrant Collection, formerly lot 706 in the Eliasberg Gold Auction.

    There has been just one solitary Uncirculated auction record for this date since early 2007: the PCGS MS62+ that brought $36,000 in the Stacks Bowers 2018 ANA sale. The present coin is significantly finer and it should realize considerably more. The design elements of this attractive Select specimen are sharply detailed in most areas, with just a touch of softness on the lower star centers. The vivid orange-gold surfaces radiate vibrant mint luster and only minor signs of contact are evident. Eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 1 in 63, 0 finer. CAC: 1 in 63, 0 finer (1/20).
    From The Harvey B. Jacobson, Jr. Collection of Liberty Eagles. (Registry values: N1)
