1843 Liberty Eagle. Breen-6861. Repunched Date, Tripled Date. AU-58 (NGC). The deep yellow-gold surfaces of this early Liberty eagle reveal lively luster, olive toning highlights, and somewhat reflective fields, especially in the protected areas. Some scattered hairlines and ticks are normal for the grade. A scarce date that saw a modest mintage of 75,462 pieces, a fraction of the mintage of its 1843-O counterpart. The repunching at the date numerals can be plainly seen at 843. A neat variety in a highly collectable grade -- NGC has certified just three Mint State examples of the date.
