Despite a reasonably low mintage of 20,000, the 1858-O tends to be overshadoweed by the rare 1859-O and it is often lumped with more common issues like the 1851-O. This is not the case and the 1858-O eagle is actually a slightly scarcer date that becomes rare in AU55 and very rare in Uncirculated.

This date is seldom found with natural color and surfaces and the present example is notable for its pleasing deep russet-gold hues. The radial lines in the stars are flat as always while the centers show good overall detail. A few old nicks on the cheek of Liberty are hard to see without magnification and the naked-eye appearance of this coin is excellent for the date and grade.

There has been just one slabbed problem-free AU53 example of the 1858-O sold at auction since 2006 (!): Bowers and Merena 9/10: 1742 at $2,128.

This coin represents good value in the popular New Orleans No Motto eagle series.
