Description & Analysis

High grade examples are rare in the every sense of the word and opportunities to acquire a true Mint State example of this date are far and few between. Even the small hoard of 16 pieces salvaged from the S.S. Republic shipwreck failed to yield a single Uncirculated example, although a few AU58 coins were found. Thus, the 1850-O ten is a true condition rarity.
