Lot Description
1869-S $10 AU53 PCGS. The San Francisco Mint coined Liberty eagles each year during the 1860s. However, mintages never exceeded 20,000 pieces. The 1869-S is typically rare. Only 6,430 pieces were struck, and it is doubtful that a single example was set aside by a collector until decades later. PCGS and NGC combined have certified just three pieces in Mint State, none above MS61. The present bold AU53 representative has lovely golden-brown toning, and the only noticeable mark is located out of the way above the portrait. Population: 3 in 53, 8 finer (11/10).
