CONDITIONALLY RARE AU58 1844-O EAGLE WITH CAC APPROVAL

As with the similar 1843-O and 1845-O eagles, the 1844-O is common in grades below AU55 but it is rare in properly graded AU58 and extremely rare in Uncirculated. I am aware of five or six Uncirculated pieces, the finest of which is an NGC MS63 which is ex SS New York.

This lustrous slider is housed in an older NGC holder and it is lightly worn with pleasing golden-orange toning on the obverse and the reverse. It is well struck with good central details and the fields are uncommonly free of the abrasions typical to this issue.

Two AU58 1844-O eagles with CAC approval have sold in the last two+ years. An NGC example brought $7,638 as Stacks Bowers 2/14: 3231 while Heritage 6/13: 4802, graded by PCGS, realized $7,931.

This is the best available quality for the date at under $10,000 and an Uncirculated 1844-O eagle, if available, would cost in excess of $20,000.

CAC has approved five in this grade with two finer (60, 61).
