Description & Analysis

All No Motto tens, even the relatively high mintage 1847, are extremely rare in MS64 or higher. The sole exception is the 1849, which is merely very rare in MS64. The denomination was too costly to be collected by 19th century numismatists, and shipwreck hoards of Uncirculated No Motto gold coins have generally consisted of double eagles.
