The 1849-O is the fourth scarcest of 21 No Motto eagles from the New Orleans mint. A total of 23,900 were made ant there are an estimated 100 known with most in the VF-EF range.

Due to its typical very flat strike, this date is one of the hardest New Orleans eagles to find with acceptable eye appeal. The present example is a pleasing coin for the grade with typical weakness on the radial lines of the stars and flatness at the central obverse. The color is very pleasing with highlights of flashy orange-gold which nicely contrast the devices. The surfaces are very choice and some dirt can be seen in the recesses of both sides.

The last PCGS EF40 to sell at auction was Heritage 7/09: 1737 which brought $1,955.

CAC has approved just this one coin in EF40 with eight finer.

From the RYK collection.
