CONDITION RARITY PCGS/CAC MS63 1897-O EAGLE

The 1897-O is the second scarcest late date New Orleans eagle after the 1897-O. It is generally seen in the AU55 to MS62 range and it is rare in properly graded MS63 and very rare finer.

I bought this choice coin from a very savvy wholesaler who felt this coin could grade MS64 and I can see his point as it is extremely clean and has nice reflectivity beneath soft russet and rose-gold hue. There is a cluster of small marks above the nostril on the obverse and a natural color copper spot can be seen at the lowest curl beneath Liberty's ear.

A non-CAC PCGS MS63 1897-O sold for $8,225 as Heritage 2017 FUN: 6942 and a nice CAC approved PCGS MS63 realized $9,775 as Heritage 2012 ANA: 12449.

If available, a PCGS MS64 example of this date would cost in excess of $15,000 and it might not have better overall eye appeal than this really attractive piece.

CAC has approved 4 in this grade with just 2 finer.
