Thanks to a special purchase, you can add a scarce $10 Liberty Head Eagle to your collection. As a scarcer Type 1 issue of 1847-1853, this pre-Civil War Eagle does not feature in god we trust on the reverse. These pieces were issued as John Sutter and James Marshall were establishing their soon-to-be-famous "gold rush mill" on the banks of California's American River... while Congress was authorizing a new branch mint in San Francisco to handle the increased volume of precious metal... and as a survey was ordered to map the best route for a railroad connecting east and west!
After more than 165 years, it's difficult to find these earlier pieces. Many of these 90% gold coins circulated heavily in the West when issued. Plus, when gold coinage came to an end with the 1933 Gold Recall Order, even more were melted, never to be seen again. Featuring only light wear and still boasting much of their original mint luster, these 1847-1853 pieces have been graded Choice About Uncirculated AU55 by our experts and certified by NGC.
