1861-S $10 Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. Only 15,500 minted. Well struck with light golden toning. An very lustrous specimen with residual cartwheels beneath bright golden shades of color. The rim are full and problem-free; the fields and devices show only a few abrasions, including those below the tip of the bust and some under the hair bun. A scarce S-mint coin in this grade, one whose standing certainly meets the qualifications for the About Uncirculated 58 assignment by NGC. The completion of the overland telegraph in 1861 which connected San Francisco to the rest of the country, ended the short existence of the famed Pony Express this year. Pop 16; 1 finer in 61 (PCGS # 8634) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 13,000.

Realized $13,800
