    Favored 1852 Wass Molitor Ten Dollar
    Small Head, K-3, VF25

    1852 $10 Wass Molitor Ten Dollar, Small Head VF25 PCGS. CAC. K-3, R.6. All varieties of the 1852 Wass Molitor ten dollar gold piece are rare in an absolute sense; at an R.6, the K-3 is not so elusive as the K-5, or "Small Closed Date," but it is more challenging than the K-4, with its "Large Head, Wide Date." This midrange example, housed in a green label holder, offers considerable radiance despite moderate wear over each side. Soft striking definition is not uncommon for the issue, while the scattered abrasions on the portrait and in the surrounding fields affect the technical grade, they also lend the coin a sense of history. Listed on page 372 of the 2010 Guide Book. (NGC ID# ANJM, PCGS# 10345)
