The 1848-O is a scarcer No Motto eagle from the New Orleans mint. It is much harder to find than such issues as the 1843-O, 1844-O and 1845-O but it is more available than the 1849-O, especially in higher grades. Properly graded AU55 examples are very scarce and this date is expensive and not easy to locate in grades higher than this.

This vibrant, frosty example shows a typical strike with flatness at the centers and on the radial lines of the stars; this is seen on all known 1848-O eagles. There is just a smidgen of wear seen on the high spots and the surfaces are less “ticky” than usual for the date and grade.

Only one PCGS AU55 1848-O eagle has sold at auction since January 2009 and this coin, ex Stacks Bowers 8/10: 1101, realized an incredible $12,650.

This is a choice, appealing example of a date which is seldom seen in this grade.
