The 1861 is the most available Civil War eagle by a large margin; not surprising when one considers that it’s mintage of 113,233 is greater than all the other issues from this era combined. While readily available in lower grades, nice AU58′s are scarce and the 1861 is harder to find in Uncirculated than most collectors realize.

This piece has a classic “Euro” appearance with rich orange-gold surfaces highlighted by darker hues on the relief details. There is a good deal of luster below and no real wear is present; just enough scuffiness in the fields to knock this pleasing coin down to the 58 level. Unlike nearly every AU 1861 eagle that I have seen, this piece appears to have never been cleaned or processed.

The last AU58 1861 eagle to sell at auction was a non-CAC NGC coin which brought $3,173 as Heritage 12/12: 5075.

An affordable Civil war eagle with considerable charm and character.

CAC has approved three in this grade with four finer.
