Lot Description
1877-S $10 AU58 NGC. This issue is relatively common in XF, but it is rare in AU grades, especially AU58. It is almost unknown in mint condition with only two pieces certified, thus making the few near-Mint State pieces the finest realistically obtainable. The surfaces display original yellow-gold surfaces with significant traces of bright mint luster surrounding the devices. A mark in the upper left obverse field and another on Liberty's cheek stand out as the most prominent abrasions on each side, although both obverse and reverse are peppered with small marks, typical for the issue. Census: 15 in 58, 2 finer (9/12).
