A total of 20,000 eagles were made in New Orleans in 1858 but this issue is more available than one might expect.  The 1858-O becomes scarce in properly graded AU55 to AU58 and it is rare in Uncirculated with around a dozen or so known.

This lightly worn example is semi-prooflike and struck in green-gold with some russet hues seen in the obverse fields. There is little actual wear but the surfaces do show some scattered marks from handling.

The last auction record for an AU55 1858-O eagle was Heritage 4/15: 6286 which went cheaply at $2,899.

The next jump up in grade—to an AU58—would cost close to double the price of this nice, high end AU55.
