1843-O $10 Gold Liberty

The mintage figure skyrocketed to 175,162 coins in 1843, and the 1843-O Eagle is a fairly easy coin to locate in lower grades. It becomes scarce in the higher About Circulated range and it is very rare in Uncirculated with no more than six or seven known. This is an issue which is plagued by bagmarks and many coins are not fully struck at the centers. While the number of coins graded by the services in AU grades is seemingly high, only a small number are choice.
