1851-O Liberty Eagle. AU-58 (NGC). Breen-6898. Hollow ring atop second vertical stripe in reverse shield. A highly lustrous deep golden specimen with plenty of mint bloom in the protected areas. No marks of a serious nature greet the unaided eye. Moderately scarce in AU despite a mintage of 263,000 piece. Indeed, only 15 Mint State grading <em>events</em> for the date have been registered by NGC, with MS-64 the highest <em>event</em> listing for the date on that firm's roster. Choice for the grade.
