1847 $10 Liberty. NGC graded MS-62. Old Holder. Well struck with nice luster and particularly beautiful reddish gold color, the surface frosty throughout. At the time No Motto gold coins were made, there were virtually no collectors in America. The richest people of Europe and England did collect coins, of course, but they tended to sniff imperiously at anything from an upstart country like ours with its backwoods reputation of tobacco farmers and whiskey stills. For this reason, even though a fair number were struck in 1847, few Mint State tens exist today. Owing to our hope in inducing the reader to look on a coin like this with the indulgent eye of understanding, we simply have to recommend it to serious buyers. In accordance with this appraisal, feel free to give it a strong bid. Pop 18; 1 finer in 63 (PCGS # 8597) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 6,500.

Realized $8,913
