1850-O $10 Liberty. NGC graded AU-53. Only 57,500 pieces struck. This piece has cunningly beautiful surfaces for what is normally a heavily abraded series. As a well struck No Motto $10, it displays ample luster and sharp, crisp detail, the latter of which is especially evident on the hair curls as well as the eagle's wings and body. A couple of tiny marks by the first and second stars, as well as a short mark below the 12th star.

Struck at New Orleans. This Southern city was a bustling port city through which most of the products of mid-continent flowed out to the rest of the world. Hence the need for a Mint to coin gold and silver in New Orleans was seen as early as the 1830s. The New Orleans Mint opened in 1838. Pop 24; 34 finer, 20 in 55, 11 in 58, 3 in 60 (PCGS # 8605) .
Estimated Value $2,200 - 2,300.

 
Realized $2,415
