    1859-O Eagle, AU53
    2,300 Coins Struck
    60 to 70 Survive

    1859-O $10 AU53 PCGS. Variety 1. "The 1859-O is the rarest New Orleans No Motto eagle from an overall standpoint," according to Doug Winter, who puts forth a survivorship of 60 to 70 pieces total. That includes 13 to 16 examples in About Uncirculated condition, and a single Mint State coin finer. A minuscule mintage of 2,300 pieces is a two-edged sword, enhancing the issue's desirability while at the same time contributing to its absolute scarcity. The central motifs exhibit impressive strike definition. However, the stars are characteristically flat. Bright yellow-gold surfaces display numerous abrasions. Population: 7 in 53, 10 finer (7/19).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2642, PCGS# 8629)
