1847 Liberty Eagle. MS-60 (NGC). 1892-CC Liberty Eagle. Winter 2-A. AU-55 (PCGS). Attractive orange-gold hues bathe the obverse and reverse, with strong luster and a solid strike. The surfaces are nicer than one would expect for the modest grade, as bagmarks are small and minimal, with hairlines also minimal for this early date. Noteworthy is the curious hollow ring at the top of the shield lines, seen on some of the later New Orleans eagles of the 1850s.
