While common in grades up to AU55, the 1853-O is very scarce in properly graded AU58 and it is extremely rare in Uncirculated with just a handful known. Most of the slabbed AU58′S have been scrubbed and examples with natural color and choice surfaces are rare.

This example was sourced in Europe and it has a distinct deep russet appearance with darker hues seen on the highlights. The appearance is very “crusty” with dirt lodged all over the obverse and reverse, most notably over the E in STATES. There is no real wear (just bag friction) and a good deal of natural luster can be seen beneath the deep coloration.

The most recent auction record for a PCGS AU58 1853-O eagle with CAC approval was Heritage 6/14: 4861 which realized a very strong $10,575.

With Uncirculated 1853-O eagles nearly impossible to locate and priced in the five-figures, this piece is a great value foor the savvy New Orleans eagle collector.

CAC has approved six in this grade with none finer.
