    1868-S Ten Dollar, AU58
    Condition Census, CAC Approved

    1868-S $10 AU58 PCGS. CAC. The 1868-S eagle is not as scarce as the 1866-S With Motto or the 1867-S, but there are still fewer than 100 pieces known in all grades out of the mintage of 13,500 coins. This issue is scarce in About Uncirculated with most of the examples grading AU55 and lower. In AU58, this date is rare and there do not appear to be any 1868-S eagles known in Uncirculated.

    Since 2005, there have been just four auction records for the 1868-S ten dollar in PCGS-certified AU58. In 2016, two pieces sold (for $17,625 and $16,450) while this specific example realized $18,213 in July 2014. This remains a record price for the issue. Only two AU58 1868-S eagles have been approved by CAC with none finer.

    The surfaces are original with yellow-gold color over most of each side and the devices surrounded by deeper reddish-gold. Nearly free from handling in commerce, abrasions are equally minor. There is a good chance that this is the single finest 1868-S eagle known and it is clearly the best available to collectors. An important coin.
