1849-O $10 Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. Unusally bold. Slightly greenish-golden color. A most desirable example. And despite a small mark near the lovelock curl on the neck, the surface is gorgeous with smooth lustrous finish. Bright yellow gold. A very nice specimen, among the finest seen, of what Douglas Winter calls the "second rarest New Orleans eagle to be struck during the 1840s," and more importantly from the same distinguished writer, "It is, in my opinion, the single most underrated eagle from this mint and is among the most difficult dates of this entire type to locate in higher grades." The present coin will attract wide attention as it crosses the block. Pop 5, only 2 better. (PCGS # 8602) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.

Realized $8,913
