1843 $10.00 NGC AU55

Doubled date variety. The 1843 eagle, like the quarter eagle of this date, is somewhat of an anomaly. Although 75,000+ were struck, the survival rate is low and it is almost never seen above AU55. In fact, I have only handled two in AU58 and none in Uncirculated in my nearly three decades of specializing in this series. This example is one of the few totally original 1843 eagles that I have seen with attractive deep, even green-gold color with some contrasting highlights. There are scattered marks in the fields with the only one(s) of note located around star ten. There are many undervalued condition rarities in the No Motto eagle series and I feel that nice, higher grade 1843's are among the better values from this decade.
CAC has only approved three 1843 eagles in all grades and none higher than AU50.
