    1860-S Ten Dollar, Choice AU
    Absolute and Condition Rarity
    Fewer Than 50 Pieces Extant

    1860-S $10 AU55 NGC. CAC. The 1860-S Liberty Head eagle is an absolute and condition rarity. Of the 5,000 coins struck, only 38 to 49 pieces are believed extant, including just three or four coins in Mint State, according to Dave Bowers' A Guide Book of Gold Eagle Coins (2017). This is one of only 26 examples graded by NGC. Five qualify for the Choice AU grade level, and only seven are finer, three of which derive from the S.S. Republic cache (12/20). This fantastic example boasts deep reddish-gold color and partial mint luster. Both sides exhibit minimal abrasions for a Western gold piece. Well-struck and well-worth a premium bid.(Registry values: N7079)
