Date 1844
Side obverse
Grade 55
Service NGC
Service Catalog # 8591
Denomination $10
Mint Mark O
Description 1844-O $10 AU55+ NGC. CAC. Variety 1. The mintmark is recut on the left inside loop on this variety, and a misplaced 8 is seen in the dentils beneath the primary 8 in the date. As a date, the 1844-O is one of the more plentiful eagles from this mint, but this should not be mistaken for ample availability; the date is elusive in the finer AU grades, and Mint State examples are rare, with none certified finer than MS63 (8/14). This Plus-graded Choice AU representative boasts undeniably original patina; the obverse displays rich antique-gold coloration and the reverse shows deeper hues of the same, with tinges of deep coppery-orange color in the recesses. Substantial luster remains, and the surfaces are free of major flaws. This is a highly attractive coin that is sure to please the most discerning collector. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $5287.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
