AU58 1853-O EAGLE

In lower grades, the 1853-O is one of the three most available No Motto eagles from New Orleans after the 1847-O and the 1851-O. It becomes scarce in AU58 and it is extremely rare in Uncirculated with just three or four currently known.

This fresh-to-the-market example was recently repatriated from an overseas source and its lustrous surfaces are characterized by rich splashes of natural orange-gold color which are primarily seen outlining the devices. The strike is about average for the issue while the surfaces show the scattered scuffs one typically sees on examples of this date.

The last NGC AU58 to sell at auction realized $5,288 as Heritage 1/13: 7324.

An affordable but clearly better-than-average 1853-O eagle.
