    Elusive 1855 Wass Molitor Ten Dollar AU55

    1855 $10 Wass Molitor Ten Dollar AU55 NGC. K-6, High R.5. After the federal branch mint in San Francisco opened in April of 1854, most of the local private coinage operations went out of business. When the mint was forced to halt operations, due to a shortage of parting acids, the smelting and assaying firm of Wass, Molitor briefly resumed striking coins around April 1855, at the urging of local business people and bankers. This Choice AU representative is typically softly struck and exhibits doubling along Liberty's profile, and on the date. The green-gold surfaces display light wear, along with numerous small marks and a few wispy pinscratches. Census: 3 in 55, 4 finer (6/07). (NGC ID# ANJR, PCGS# 10354)
