    Scarce Date

    1842-O $10 PCGS AU55 ex: D.L. Hansen

    $8,750.00
     

    Affordable and original AU example of this early and challenging O-mint Eagle. Yellow-gold color graces incredibly lustrous, lightly abraded surfaces. Low mintage date of 27,400 coins. The primary Hansen Collection registry set displays a MS61 example for the date.


    Scarce O-Mint

    1860-O $10 NGC AU58

    $8,500.00
     

    A very scarce issue from a mintage of just 11,100 pieces. Less than a dozen pieces are graded finer by both services combined, this coin is a popular pre-War issue from the underrated New Orleans mint.


    Scarce, Low Mintage P-Mint

    1870 $10 PCGS AU55

    $9,000.00
     

    An underrated date with less than 100 known to exist from a minor mintage of only 3,990 pieces struck. Flashy surfaces with beautiful luster. Only 10 graded as such with 8 pieces graded finer by PCGS. There are interestingly no pieces graded as mintstate.


    Rare Date

    1873 $10 PCGS AU53 ex: D.L. Hansen Collection

    $37,500.00
     

    Ron Guth writes that "there are few eagles rarer than the 1873 Close 3," and its mintage of just 800 coins make it the "lowest of any eagle up until that time" with the 1875 and 1877 coming in at even fewer later in the decade. Often overlooked by collectors and dealers, the date is appreciated by specialists as PCGS suggests that only 30 to 35 pieces are known, with only a single piece that survives as uncirculated. This rare, elusive offering of this date is an opportunity appreciated by the rare gold specialists. The Hansen collection houses a pair of AU53 examples, which accounts for all 3 pieces that are graded by PCGS as such.
