1844-O Liberty Head Eagle. Winter-5. Repunched Mintmark. AU-58 (PCGS). This is a remarkably well preserved, highly attractive coin in an 1844-O eagle. Pretty orange-gold patina blankets both sides, the surfaces of which retain plenty of lively mint luster. Overall sharply defined with only the lightest rub precluding a full Mint State grade. The 1844-O trails only the 1847-O and 1843-O as the third most plentiful New Orleans Mint eagle from the 1840s. Even so, survivors from a mintage of 118,700 pieces are scarce in an absolute sense, and they are seldom offered at or above the present grade level. With Uncirculated examples particularly elusive, this premium Choice AU is a strong candidate for inclusion in an advanced gold cabinet or mintmarked type set.
