1849-O $10.00 PCGS EF40 CAC

This appealing coin has very deep rich orange-gold color that is suggestive of having been stored in a source such as an old coin album, a manila envelope or even a leather pouch. This sort of coloration is not often seen on examples of this date, especially pieces with this amount of circulation. As is typical for the issue, the strike is flat on the obverse and this gives the impression of more wear than what is actually present. Other than a few small, scattered marks on the obverse, the surfaces are clean and this is among the more attractive 1849-O eagles in this price range that I can recall having seen.
