1848-O Liberty Eagle. AU-53 (PCGS). Satiny and pleasing with clean surfaces and classic greenish-gold throughout, often seen from New Orleans gold planchets. The strike is sharp, and despite a generous mintage of 35,850 pieces, just a handful survived in AU or finer grades. A prize for the New Orleans or early Coronet eagle specialist.
