Lot Description
1848-O Liberty Eagle. EF-45 (NGC). Deep yellow-gold with lively orange highlights at the peripheries. Only lightly marked n places, a blessing for an eagle that&nbsp;experienced a lengthy stay in commerce. The variety with a hollow ring atop the second set of vertical stripes in the reverse shield. (The first notation in Breen's <em>Encyclopedia </em>(1988) for this reverse variety is for the 1851-O eagle; he notes the reverse variety for <em>later dates, </em>but no eagle earlier than the&nbsp;1851-O issue&nbsp;is listed with this die anomaly.) Choice for the grade with a solid all-around appearance.
