SCARCE PCGS AU58 1880-O EAGLE
The 1880-O is the third scarcest With Motto eagle from New Orleans after the extremely rare 1883-O and the very rare 1879-O. This date is not often seen above AU58 and the price jump to Uncirculated (a nice PCGS MS61, if available, will cost in excess of $20,000) makes a solid AU58 very good value for most collectors.
This bright yellow gold and rose example has no wear but there are just a few too many ticks on the obverse to properly call this an MS61. Both sides are very frosty and the strike is sharp throughout.
Since 2011, four PCGS AU58 1880-O eagles have sold at auction, and they have brought from $8,400 (3/18) to $9,988 (9/15 and 8/17).
This coin is from the same source as the 1888-O eagle in PCGS MS63 which I also have listed in this round of new purchases.
