Lot Description
1844 $10 MS61 NGC. The 1844-P is an extremely rare issue with only 6,361 pieces produced. Its mintage is an accurate indicator of overall rarity, and it is almost never seen in Uncirculated condition. Our records show this is the first Mint State piece we have offered for sale at public auction. When the totals are combined from both of the major grading services, this is one of only three Uncirculated coins certified (8/01). The surfaces are sharply struck but dull with an angling planchet lamination on each side of Liberty's neck. On the reverse, the only mark of note is an abrasion above the N in TEN. Of the utmost rarity and importance to specialists.
