Nothing adds prestige and excitement to a collection like historic U.S. gold coins! These 1888-S Liberty Head $10 gold eagles are handpicked from a fresh original group – secured away many years ago and escaping mass melting after FDR’s 1933 Gold Recall Order. They display the strong strikes and abundant luster typical of $10 gold pieces from San Francisco. Very desirable in Select Uncirculated MS-62 condition, these coins are attractively priced compared to more elusive higher grades (NGC has certified only 696 coins in MS-62 condition and just 101 higher).
These coins were struck over 125 years ago at the San Francisco Mint – established in 1854 to convert the output of California gold rush mines into coinage and to serve the fast-growing West Coast population. However, thanks to technical expertise and a manageable workload, many 19th-century “S” mint mark coins are prized for uncommonquality. Each Select Uncirculated 1888-S gold eagle has been graded by our experts and is certified by NGC. Don’t miss this opportunity to add a coveted, historic San Francisco $10 gold piece to your collection!
