1850-O $10 Liberty. NGC graded AU-53. Smooth golden surfaces display a bit of luster with a whisper smooth natural rub from its few years spent in circculation. Sharp and appealing. The 1850's were the high water mark of cotton shipping, cotton culture, and cotton wealth in nineteenth century New Orleans, and it is more likely than not this 1850-O Liberty $10 gold coin played a role in the commerce of the lower Mississippi River trade back then. Mark Twain was a fifteen-year-old cub pilot-trainee on a Mississippi steamboat the year of this coin. Only 57,500 minted. Pop 23; 33 finer, 19 in 55, 11 in 58, 3 in 60 (PCGS # 8605) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,500.
