||1894-O $10 MS62 NGC. CAC. Variety 1. The 1894-O had a fair mintage of 107,500 coins, and is usually available in circulated condition for the date collector. In Mint State the issue is also available, but the certified population dramatically decreases at each ascending grade level. This CAC-endorsed representative boasts radiant honey-gold luster and unusually clean surfaces for the grade. The strike is essentially sharp, the sole exceptions being the eagle's talons and star 13, which are often weak on this New Orleans issue. Census: 58 in 62, 15 finer (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
