1843-O Liberty Eagle. Winter Variety Two. AU-53 (NGC). Evenly patinated in a khaki-orange hue, this piece exhibits only the expected scuffiness for a No Motto Eagle from the New Orleans Mint at the lower reaches of AU. A bit of granularity to the texture is noted, a feature that is probably associated with the coin's pedigree to the <em>S.S. Republic </em>shipwreck.
