A very scarce issue with just 14,500 pieces produced, the extant population for the 1856-O Eagle is probably fewer than 100 coins. We offer here a lightly circulated Choice AU that is bathed in bright green-gold color. Overall scuffy, as perhaps befits the grade, yet still possessed of appreciable luster that is most vibrant in the protected areas around the devices. Boldly defined.<br /> This lot includes a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc., salvagers of the <em>S.S. Republic </em>shipwreck and its treasure.
