1860-O $10 Liberty No Motto NGC AU58 CAC. Only 11,100 coins minted. Out of eleven auction appearances for an AU58 since 1995, not one has been endorsed by CAC. This is the first we’ve ever handled and this coin really speaks for itself-! CAC has only endorsed 3 examples in the AU58 grade and none finer! As far as the grading services are concerned, the NGC Census show 24 coins in AU58, with just one example in each grade from MS60 to MS63. PCGS has only graded 2 coins AU58 and one coin uncirculated. The Collectors Universe price guide is $11,500. It increased from $8,500 back in May 2011.
This particular example shows semi reflective fields. It is a first-rate specimen with richly permeating color that flows across the even, virtually mark-free golden surface. Based upon the way the 1860-O $20 double eagle has increased in value over the past five years, we don’t hesitate to say this date in high AU grade is quite underrated and due for remarkable price increases.
