1847 $10 Liberty No Motto PCGS MS62 – SOLD


1847 $10 Liberty No Motto PCGS MS62 Ex.Simpson-Hall.  Mint State-62 is the most popular grade when collectors jump into the advanced 19 or complete 34-coin gold Type Sets. One really doesn’t have to sacrifice quality in this grade but can stretch the dollars spent for other issues and still have a coin that is scarce to rare – and always affordable to serious buyers. This premium quality example was last seen in 2015 in Legend Auction Regency Sale VIII. It was described as “…Glistening and bright! Although this is a plentiful issue with a significant mintage, Mint State pieces are downright scarce. PCGS has graded ten others at this grade level, but only four are finer with the best of those a single MS64. The present coin has been chosen to represent this date and Mint on the CoinFacts website. And one can see why when studying this charming coin, for it offers solid luster, a bold strike and clean surfaces. The color is classic orange gold with a hint of copper near the rims. Another feature is present which is seen on a few later dates from New Orleans, and that is a centering raised circle placed right at the top of the second shield stripes counting from the left. This must have been some kind of centering device used to create one of the master hubs as it comes and goes on various years including the 1850-O, 1851-O and 1853-O as well as this 1847. PCGS 11, NGC 11. No current sales but the best available is $7,475.00 from (11/11) for this grade. This piece has it all, comparative value, great eye appeal and a bold strike.” We couldn’t say it any better!
