There are sliders, there are gem sliders and then, every so often, there is an AU58 that is so very choice that you wonder “how is it possible that this coin isn’t in an MS61 holder?” This is a coin that makes you ask that question…

This superb example has full, frosty luster and lovely natural lighht green-gold hues on the obverse and reverse. There is just the slightest amount of friction on the high spots but, when you consider it, this is the case on virtually all No Motto eagles graded MS60, MS61 and even MS62!

The 1851-O is the second most available No Motto eagle from this mint after the 1847-O but it is quite scarce in properly graded AU58 and much rarer than believed in Uncirculated.

There are two auction records for PCGS AU58′s this year: $4,888 in April and $4,830 in January. The present example is clearly finer than either of those and it is one of the nicest AU58 New Orleans eagle of this type that I have seen this year.

CAC has approved nine in this grade with just two finer.
