The 1843-O is among the more available No Motto eagles from New Orleans. It is common in grades up to AU53 but it is scarce in AU55 to AU58 and rare in Uncirculated. Most seen in AU58 holders have been processed and these coins lack character as a result.

This example was recently located in Europe and it shows deep natural golden color with contrasting darker highlights. It has little in the way of actual wear but there are some bag scuffs in the fields as well as some scrapes in the left obverse. This piece has likely never been cleaned or dipped and it shows much better overall detail than normal for the issue.

The last two non-CAC AU58 examples to sell at auction are Stacks Bowers 2/15: 2554 at $4,994 (for an NGC coin) and Heritage 6/14: 4287 at $4,230 (for a very low-end PCGS coin).

If available, a properly grade MS61 1843-O eagle would cost in the $11,000-14,000 range, making this nice AU58 suitable for most sets of New Orleans Liberty Head eagles.
