***Auction Highlight*** 1848-p Gold Liberty Eagle $10 Graded ms63+ By SEGS. 0 HIGHLIGHT OF THE MONTH – Up for Auction is one of a dozen mint state 1848-p $10 Liberty Gold to have survived! An outstanding coin with exceptional eye appeal. One of the very finest circulation strike examples known of this date. One is struck immediately by the prooflike reflectivity in the fields on both sides, more pronounced on the reverse, the. the result of die maintenance. Sharp die polish lines are seen in the fields. This texture is seen on other high-grade coins of this date and mint, most notably some examples of the famous 1848 CAL quarter eagles. The texture of the devices is satiny, making them stand out visually from the fields. Beautifully struck. A few scattered marks are noted, accounting for the grade not being as high as the overall eye appeal might suggest. When David Akers wrote his important studies on federal gold coins, published in 1980, he noted five appearances of coins called "Uncirculated," some of which could have been the same piece. He also wrote about the date, "Most known specimens are only VF or EF and strictly uncirculated examples are extremely rare." This summed the situation up perfectly, as a scanning of auction appearances easily confirms.What may be most remarkable about the 1848 in this grade is the list of collections that had far inferior examples, or none at all. The lead among these is the Eliasberg Collection, which contained only an "EF-40." The Garrett family, Virgil Brand, and the Norweb family also failed to acquire anything noteworthy for this date, illustrative of just how difficult it is to find. Harry W. Bass, Jr., the most aggressive student and collector of federal gold of our time, did find a lovely example graded MS-63 . I have included two other ms64 Examples, the first having sold in 2/20 and reazlized $66,000 and the other sold back in 10/14 and realized $64,625. What strikes me most about these two coins is the similarity to our coin. In fact the one that sold in 2020 could be a doppelganger for ours. I wish you good Luck in securing this awesome coin!
