Description

1848 Liberty Eagle. MS-60 (NGC).

Bright yellow-gold and lustrous in the fields. Minor handling marks as expected, and a rare date in mint state as most of these entered circulation and stayed. Good eye appeal as the handling marks blend into the fields and devices and are not of the deep or detracting nature common to this series. Scarce and important as this is the year of the discovery of gold in California.
