    1888 Eagle, MS63
    Housed in a Green Label Holder

    1888 $10 MS63 PCGS. CAC. This sounds like a broken record (and we are only through 1888) but this is another date that has a similar rarity profile: easy to find up through MS62, rare in MS63, and unavailable higher. In fact, the 1888 was essentially unknown above MS62 until around a decade ago; even today, PCGS has a population of only seven pieces in MS63 with one finer, a 63+ (12/19).

    Since the beginning of 2010 there have been four PCGS MS63 1888 eagles sold at auction and only one since January 2015: a coin sold in the ANA Auction (Heritage, 8/2019), lot 4750, for $6,600. This piece is fully struck and satiny with rich orange-gold luster that shows wisps of lemon-yellow intermingled.
