1861 $10 Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. Light golden toning with luster around the main devices as well as within the hair on Liberty and in the eagle's feathers. A boldly original, uncleaned specimen of this Civil War year. (The American Civil War of 1861-65 has been known by numerous alternative names that reflect the historical, political, and cultural sensitivities of different groups and regions. Some that are current in the 21st century are: Civil War, War Between the States, War of the Rebellion, War for Southern Independence, War of Northern Aggression, and Mr. Lincoln's War. The end result was the same, the further consolidation of power into the body of the central authority in Washington, D.C. During the conflict, gold coins such as this $10 Liberty were either hoarded or exported, with all specie pretty much disappearing from the streams of commerce east of the Mississippi River.) Pop 130; 50 finer. (PCGS # 8633) .
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,200.
