Lot Description
1879 $10 MS64 PCGS. This breathtakingly lovely eagle boasts off-the-charts eye appeal, with its combination of a crisp strike (save for the lock of hair just above the ear), coruscating luster, and beautiful, even orange-copper patination. A few stray contact marks on each side limit a Gem designation. For an issue with a mintage in excess of 384,000 pieces, this date is surprisingly scarce in MS64. Population: 5 in 64, 3 finer (5/06).
