    1868 Liberty Eagle, MS60
    Impressive Prooflike Example

    1868 $10 MS60 Prooflike PCGS. The 1868 is the most available Liberty eagle struck between 1862 and 1873. A few hundred exist in all grades with most grading AU55 or lower. In properly graded AU58, this is a scarce date and the 1868 remains rare in Uncirculated with just four or five known. Mint State examples with the Prooflike designation are virtually unobtainable.

    The present coin is an impressive Mint State specimen with pleasing yellow-gold surfaces that exhibit reflective prooflike fields. Numerous minor contact marks and some chatter in the fields are consistent with the grade. The design elements are sharply detailed and the overall presentation is most attractive. Population: 1 in 60 Prooflike, 1 finer (1/20).
    Ex: Moreira Collection, Part III (Superior, 1/1989), lot 3912.
    From The Harvey B. Jacobson, Jr. Collection of Liberty Eagles. (PCGS# 88653)
