CAC APPROVED PCGS AU50 1880-O EAGLE

Only 9,200 1880-O eagles were made and this date is the scarcest member of the popular low-mintage New Orleans trio from 1880 to 1882. The 1880-O is seen most often in the EF40 to AU53 range and it is characterized by baggy, bright coins.

This fresh-to-the-market piece came from Europe and it is notable for its relatively abrasion-free surfaces and natural medium straw-gold color. Both sides show some luster and were it nor for a small cluster of shallow marks in the upper left obverse field, I think this coin would have graded at least AU53.

Two different non-CAC PCGS AU50 1880-O eagles sold at auction for $4,230 in September 2015 and August 2016.

This date was vastly under-priced for years and I begged collectors to buy AU's for $1,500 back when no one cared. Now that New Orleans eagles are popular, the demand for coins of this quality seems insatiable.

CAC has approved 3 in this grade with 9 finer.
