Description & Analysis

One of the many 'sleepers' within the No Motto Liberty Eagle series, the 1857 has a mintage of just 16,606 pieces. Regarded by contemporary collectors as mere bullion, the entire issue went into circulation where it remained until the Civil War led to hoarding of all gold coins.
