1882-O $10.00 NGC AU53

This attractive, fresh example shows deep "Euro" coloration with rich green-gold fields contrasted by darker highlights on the relief areas. As is typical for the date, the surfaces show a number of abrasions; on this coin, the majority are on the obverse and they are reasonably well hidden by the depth of the coloration. Only a few hundred examples of this date exist from the original mintage of just 10,820. I have long regarded the 1882-O as an undervalued issue within the New Orleans eagle series.
