After a two decade+ hiatus, production of eagles resumed at the New Orleans mint in 1879.

The 1880-O is a scarce, overlooked issue with an original mintage of 9,200. It is seen most often in the EF40 to AU50 range and most examples are very bright and very baggy. This is a choice, original piece with nice even green-gold color and flashes of luster in the protected areas. A noticeable old mark curves over the right side of the date but, overall, this is a very nice example for the grade and it is, curiously, a virtual twin to Heritage 1/12: 6527 9also graded EF45 by PCGS) that realized $1,840.
