    Scarce 1855 Wass Molitor Ten Dollar, VF35

    1855 $10 Wass Molitor Ten Dollar VF35 PCGS. CAC. K-6, High R.5. Notable for the circular "plug" visible under the final digit of the date, which is believed to be where the coiner removed a 2 in order to indicate the correct year of manufacture. Although a number of these pieces were recovered from the S.S. Central America, this remains quite a scarce date and variety that is desirable in any grade. This is an olive-gold coin, with noticeable wear amid a good deal of surface contact; however, a great deal of design detail remains evident. The strike is mushy, as always. A curved scratch is visible on the right side of the eagle, while a similar prominent curved line extending from the 1 in the date to below star 2 is a planchet flaw (as struck). Listed on page 370 of the 2009 Guide Book.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# ANJR, PCGS# 10354)
