1870 $10 Liberty. NGC graded AU-53. Only 4,025 minted. Nice strike and untoned. Only 1 mint state 60 graded at either service. Semi-lustrous with only a few minor abrasions. Considerable mint bloom adheres around the devices, though does not extend much into the field. There is a short scuff in the area above the denomination (the most noticeable mark), however since this is a scarce issue from a low mintage year, collectors will want to give it leeway. Relatively few have been offered for sale in all the years we've been auctioning coins, and most that do appear are in the scruffy grades for the most part. The low population figure for this grading service confirms the scarcity factor: Pop 8; 22 finer (PCGS # 8657) .
Estimated Value $2,500 - 2,800.

Realized $2,645
