This choice, original coin has no real wear but it is–rightfully–graded AU58 on account of some light friction on the high spots and scattered marks in the fields from having been transported loose in a bag. It is very attractively toned with rich, even green-gold and the details are excellent with a full strike seen at the centers and borders.

Only 8,350 1881-O eagles were made and this is a date that is hard to find in any grade above EF. It is not often seen in the higher AU grades and it is very rare in Uncirculated with probably no more than six to eight known The best I have personally seen is an MS61 and I am aware of an NGC 61 with CAC approval having recently traded for close to $20,000.

The last two APR’s for NGC AU58′s, both of which occurred in 2011, are $5,175 and $5,463 respectively.

For all intents and purposes, this is the best available quality for the date.
