Lot Description
1854-O $10 Small Date MS60 NGC. Moderately scarce as an issue, with the Small Date being the more common of the two varieties of the year. Mint State examples are extremely rare--NGC has seen just two MS60 coins, and one MS61, with none grading higher. PCGS has certified no Uncirculated specimens (10/05). Moreover, just six Mint State pieces have appeared at auction within the past ten years, none grading higher than MS61. The MS60 coin offered here displays bright apricot-gold surfaces. Relatively sharp definition is noted on the design elements, though the hair over Liberty's ear is a touch soft. This piece actually exhibits nice luster for the grade, though the luster flow is occasionally broken by numerous tiny marks scattered about, particularly on the obverse.
