The 1840 is the first year in which the new Small Letters reverse was used exclusively to produce ten dollar gold pieces. It is a reasonably easy date to find in VF and EF grades but nice About Uncirculated coins are scarce and this date is very rare in Uncirculated.

This lightly worn example shows pleasing natural green-gold and orange hues with some luster remaining and far fewer marks than normal for this date. The 1840 eagle tends to be very “baggy” and this coin has no marks of note.

Only one PCGS AU55 has sold since August 2010 and it went cheaply at $1,998 due to some bad obverse marks. An NGC AU55 sold for $2,115 as Heritage 6/15: 5324.

Good value for the No Motto Liberty Head eagle specialist.
