1880-O $10 Liberty. NGC graded MS-60. Frosty and untoned. A rare low mintage date as only 9,200 were struck. The 1880-O is the most affordable of the trio of scarce New Orleans eagles struck between 1880 and 1882. It is thought that, from the original mintage, possibly 200-250 examples are known. The issue is relatively easy to locate in grades up to an including About Uncirculated; its scarcity becomes etched in stone in Mint Condition, however, where the 1880-O eagle is prohibitively rare. Pop 4; 7 finer (PCGS # 8689) .
Estimated Value $5,000 - 5,300.

Realized $6,325
