1853-O $10 Liberty. NGC graded AU-55. A hint of light gold toning. Only 51,000 minted. Any collector wishing to buy a nice, sharp, snappy lustrous early Eagle struck at New Orleans would do well by considering this handsome 1853-O. It is affordable. It is attractive. And best of all, it carries a lot of history jam-packed into its nearly half ounce of gold content! (1853 was they year that 18-year-old "cub" pilot Mark Twain was getting his experience as a Mississippi riverboat skipper, by the way.) Pop 50; 45 finer; 41 in 58; 4 in 61. (PCGS # 8612) .
Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,200.

Realized $1,898
