This lovely coin has about as much eye appeal as one could possibly expect, for an AU example. Beautiful mint-green and peach colors are intermingled over the satiny, quite lustrous surfaces. Other than minute hairlines, and a small reed mark on the upper reverse field, both sides present a remarkably clean appearance. This is the second-rarest 1840s gold eagle issue from the New Orleans Mint.
