Lot Description
The 1847 eagle is actually a common coin in lower grades, due to a relatively high mintage of 862,258 pieces. A quick study of the PCGS Population Report shows a great concentration of coins at the&nbsp;EF-40 to AU-50 range. Despite being well represented with some 221 examples from the <em>S.S. </em>Republic, this date is scarce&nbsp;in Mint State, and PCGS has only graded a&nbsp;dozen coins at this level, with a mere four coins finer. This coin has pleasing medium gold&nbsp;surfaces with semi-reflective luster. A&nbsp;good strike and only a widely dispersed smattering of minute contact marks. A&nbsp;lovely example for the&nbsp;specialist. &nbsp;
