Lot Description
This semi-prooflike survivor is sharply defined in the absence of all but light wear. The surfaces are also minimally abraded for a circulated O-mint gold coin of this size, and the overall appearance is more accurately described as Choice AU as opposed to AU-50. There is some glossiness to the texture, however, and a light cleaning probably explains why PCGS net graded this coin. The 1844-O may be among the more plentiful New Orleans Mint Tens, but it is still more elusive in numismatic circles than the 1847-O and 1851-O.
