Lot Description
1865 $10 AU53 PCGS. The 1865 is an impressively scarce Civil War issue with only 3,980 business strikes produced. Akers made the comment in his book on the ten dollar series that he had never seen an 1865 above XF. A few high grade pieces have surfaced since that time, but only one Mint State piece has been certified. The central devices on this coin are a bit softly struck, as usual, and the surfaces are bright overall with a considerable overlay of reddish patina. The most obvious abrasions are located between stars 1 and 2, and in the upper reverse field below OF. Population: 6 in 53, 8 finer (12/13). From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
