||1877-S $10 AU55 NGC. CAC. The 1877-S is an underappreciated With Motto issue; with a mintage of only 17,000 pieces, it is typically seen only in the VF to XF grade range. AU examples are conditionally scarce, and there are only three Mint State examples reported on the certified population charts (all NGC coins), the finest of which is only MS61. This Choice AU representative exhibits warm antique gold color, with remnants of semiprooflike mirroring in the protected regions of the fields. The surfaces are remarkably clean for the grade, and wear is minimal. Census: 31 in 55, 13 finer (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
