1858-O. NGC graded AU-58. Lightly toned with luster still visible. Only 20,000 struck. It has been a few years since we offered an 1858-O ten that was comparable in grade to this attractive AU58. While once regarded as rare in any condition, the discovery of a small hoard of 15-30 pieces in Jackson, Tennessee in 1985 changed the landscape of the Condition Census for this issue. Some of these hoard pieces were even Mint State, but were considered only average quality Uncs. This is a wonderful lightly circulated example that has a few minor marks in the fields including a modest one by Libertys nose, while on each side we note luster intermixed within the devices. The central details are sharply impressed with the only area of weakness being on the peripheral stars. Pop 46; 5 finer (PCGS # 8626) .
Estimated Value $2,800 - 2,900.
