$10.00 - 1871 PCGS AU55 - $9500
RARE LOW MINTAGE 1871 $10 GRADED AU55 BY PCGS
This overlooked date has an absurdly low mintage of just 1,790 business strikes with around 60-70 known. The 1871 eagle is rare in properly graded AU55 and essentially unavailable finer.
As with all known examples of this date, the surfaces show a number of abrasions but these are less impacting than normal. There is plenty of remaining luster and the surfaces haven't been scrubbed as evidenced by the natural straw-gold color.
Only two PCGS AU55 1871 eagles have sold at auction since early 2011: this coin (see below) and another in March 2015 which brought $9,400.
