1871-S $10 Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. Untoned. Only 16,500 struck. Satiny golden surfaces display strong luster and attractive reddish accents. Very choice overall for the assigned grade, in lieu of the fact there are very few of the usual scattering of tiny marks. We note a small mark at the back point of the bust. A notable rarity in lustrous About Uncirculated condition despite a modestly high mintage. This date is typically Extremely Fine and heavily abraded when available, with Mint State pieces unaccounted for in the NGC census. A very rare issue. This example represents a numismatic five-course serving, offering, as is does, a rare date within the context of the Liberty head With Motto Type. What could be more enticing? Pop 8; None finer at NGC. (PCGS # 8662) .
Estimated Value $10,000 - 11,000.

Realized $10,063
