The 1858-O is a scarcer date than generally realized. It is typically found in EF40-AU50 grades and a properly graded AU55 is quite scarce. In Uncirculated, this is a very rare date and I am aware of around ten pieces.

This piece shows a much better strike than usual with nearly all the stars having full radial lines. The luster is slightly reflective in texture, which is unusual for this date, and the color isa light green-gold hue with some slightly deeper shadings in the obverse fields.

It is my belief that the PCGS population figure of 17 graded in AU55 is inflated and I base this on the fact that none have sold at auction in over three years.

The last appearance at auction for a PCGS AU55 1858-O eagle is Heritage 3/09: 6008 which brought a very strong $4,888. The last NGC AU 55 was Heritage 10/11: 5016, which sold for $2,990.
