1843-O Liberty Eagle. Winter Variety Two. AU-58 (NGC). One of the more popular type issues in this Southern gold series, the 1843-O is tied with the 1844-O and 1853-O as the 17th rarest of only 21 issues in the early O-mint Eagle series. The present example exhibits bright yellow-gold surfaces and ample remnants of a semi-prooflike finish. Sharply defined with hardly any rub to report, even a smattering of wispy abrasions is hardly significant at the near-Mint grade level.
