1857-O $10 Liberty No Motto NGC AU55. This AU55 example has strong remaining luster with an element of reflectivity. Lightly worn with minor, scattered abrasions but strong eye appeal. What’s really impressive is the original mintage for this issue is only 5,500 pieces! NGC has certified a total of 56 examples in all grades, but a mere 13 in this AU55 grade with ten finer. The only example EVER to sell described as “Brilliant Uncirculated” was the 1994 James A Stacks example, but NEITHER service records a Mint State example as having been graded. The Stack specimen realized an astounding $26,400 in that sale twenty years ago! The PCGS published price guide for AU55 is $15,000.
