    Noteworthy Mint State 1852 Assay Office Ten

    1852 $10 Assay Office Ten Dollar MS61 NGC. K-12a(2), R.5. An attractive yellow-gold representative of this early U.S. Assay Office of Gold variety. The eagle's breast feathers are well defined, and luster dominates all legends and devices. A few moderate obverse marks emerge beneath a strong lens, characteristic of the MS61 grade. Most Assay Office gold coins are circulated or impaired. Mint State pieces are subject to formidable demand from Territorial specialists. K-12a(2) is the "Faint Beads" subvariety of K-12a. The reverse dentils or beads are indistinct, a feature presumably caused by die wear. Slender die cracks are present throughout the lower obverse border, and also across the left reverse legends. Listed on page 351 of the 2007 Guide Book.
    From The Jones Beach Collection. (NGC ID# ANGV, PCGS# 10001)
