The 1861 $10 Liberty eagle is one of the more common No Motto $10 Liberty eagles to acquire in circulated grades, but as uncirculated examples, especially in MS62 or better, that distinction goes completely the other way. For the same reasons as explained in the aforementioned 1861 $5, the government increased the production of the larger gold denominations to cover the mass printing of the Demand Notes issued in 1861, which, of course, were backed by gold. The present specimen displays even, warm, light reddish-gold surfaces accompanied by an extremely strong strike. We note significant mint luster intermixed with a semi-prooflike quality in the fields, both created by die polishing. The $10 eagle issue in this set easily makes up nearly 40% of the overall value – it’s THAT rare!
