1849 $10.00 NGC MS61

As with most No Motto Philadelphia eagles from this era, the 1849 is common in circulated grades but rare in Uncirculated and nearly unobtainable above MS62 to MS63. This piece is really choice for the grade with no luster breaks in the fields and an absence of rubbing on the high spots. The surfaces are clean with just a few small, scattered marks and the luster is frosty with a slightly different texture seen surrounding the devices on both sides. As is typical for this date, there is some minor weakness of strike at the centers. There is a huge price jump for this date as you go higher up the grading ladder and this makes a nice MS61 coin like this a very good value, in my opinion.
