    1862-S Liberty Eagle, AU50
    Rarely Seen Finer

    1862-S $10 AU50 PCGS. This date is considerably scarcer than the 1861-S eagle but it is more available than the 1863-S through 1866-S No Motto issues. There are an estimated 65-75 pieces known and this is a difficult date in properly graded About Uncirculated with fewer than 10 examples presently accounted for. This date is unique in Uncirculated with the sole example the PCGS MS61 from the Simpson / Hall Collection that sold for a record-smashing $103,500 in the Central States Signature (Heritage 4/2011), lot 5427 (it should be noted that the coin was graded by NGC but it was crossed-over to PCGS immediately afterward). There has not been a single PCGS-certified AU50 example of this date sold at auction since August 2009, and since then only a single NGC AU50 has sold; it brought $8,225 in the Summer FUN Signature (Heritage 7/2106), lot 4019. This lightly worn, lightly abraded AU specimen will be a welcome addition to a fine collection or type set.
    From The Harvey B. Jacobson, Jr. Collection of Liberty Eagles. (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 55H4, PCGS# 8636)

    Weight: 16.72 grams
