Lot Description
Well struck and lustrous with only the slightest evidence of light handling. Only 5000 struck. Pop 1; 2 finer, 1 in 61, 1 in 62</B> Housed in a plush inlay mahogany case with brass hinges and a booklet as marketed by Odyssey Marine Exploration. Bidders should be made aware that even though a few higher grade '60-S tens have entered the marketplace over the last dozen years, this still remains a daunting rarity in the No Motto series regardless of its condition. This piece right up there in the Condition Census with one or two others per the following census. The 1860-S is also an absolute rarity from the fact so few were made in the first place. This piece displays a crisp clear strike in the centers with somewhat softer details on the peripheral obverse stars. The lovely residual luster comes from the cold deep ocean waters which it was immersed for almost 140 years. <BR>Estimated Value $18,000 - 20,000. <I><BR>S.S. Republic.</I>
