After a two decade hiatus, production of eagles at the New Orleans mint resumed in 1879. For most collectors, the 1880-O is the first affordable With Motto issue from this mint. Only 9,200 were made and this issue is scarce in all grades. It was grossly undervalued for many years but it is now recognized as being a desirable, highly desirable issue.

This choice, original example shows even wear with medium russet color on both sides. There are no marks of note which is uncommon for this typically “choppy” issue. Some dirt can be found in the recesses, especially within the shield on the reverse.

A non-CAC NGC EF45 brought $1,880 as Heritage 4/13: 5903.

CAC has approved two in this grade with nine finer.
