1839 $10 PCGS XF45 (Small Letters, Type of 1840)

Rare Date, First Year of Type

Coins We Love

A very underrated issue from a mintage of just 12,447 pieces. Lustrous, orange-golden highlights with nice luster. A first year of type issue and often overlooked as a true first year coin. In the Akers landmark auction survey of Gold Eagles, this date ranks in rarity ahead of several scarce dates, such as 1876, 1879-O, 1873-CC, 1920-S to name a few. Meant for the astute eagle collector.
