1864 $10 Liberty. NGC graded MS-61. Encased in NGC holder 3006624-001. Tied for the finest graded. Only 3,530 minted. A nice bold strike. A much-respected example of this highly sought-after No Motto ten. The 1864 Philadelphia Mint eagle is very rare due to a tiny original mintage. Collectors became conscious of the fact long ago that many Civil War date tens, the '64 in particular, are also condition rarities with few making it into the Mint State category. Of the individual survivors known to collectors, most are circulated. Of those that are not, this handsome MS61 is tied with only a couple of others as the finest example certified by NGC. In conclusion, this is a meritorious Brilliant Uncirculated coin that is carefully made throughout. The fields impart a semi-prooflike gloss to the coin. There are relatively few abrasions about, and these primarily in the field, with the most pervasive ones (for tracing the provenance) comprising a rough area above the eagle's head. Consider it mandatory to place a firm bid in order to elbow out the competition. Pop 2; none finer (PCGS # 8639) .
Estimated Value $11,000 - 12,000.

Realized $16,100
