Very much the scarcer of the two date logotypes for the 1850 Liberty Ten, this gently circulated survivor reveals mostly small, singularly inconspicuous abrasions to both sides. Bright olive-gold color throughout, with considerable luster that is most vibrant when the coin dips into a light. The strike is suitably bold for a Liberty Eagle from the late 1840s/early 1850s.
