RARE CIVIL WAR ISSUE 1862 EAGLE IN PCGS AU55

Around 100 or so 1862 eagles exist from an original mintage of 10,960 business strikes. This is the second most available Civil War eagle after the common 1861 but it is very scarce in properly graded AU55 and quite rare in AU58.

This fresh-to-the-market example is very lustrous and it shows little actual wear. As usual, the surfaces are slightly bagmarked with the most noticeable ones seen on the cheek of Liberty and in the left obverse field. Unlike most 1862 eagles, this piece is unscrubbed with natural light lemon color. The eye appeal is excellent for the date and grade.

Two PCGS AU55 1862 eagles sold at auction in 2015 and realized $6,514 and $7,050, respectively. In 2013-14, there were three auction records of close to $10,000 for this date in AU55.

It would be hard to locate a finer example of this date without paying into five figures.
