Lot Details
1849 Moffat & Co. $10 TEN DOL. XF40 ANACS
K-6a, R.5. Weight 16.514 grams. The first coins issued by the private firm of Moffat & Company were 1849-dated ten dollar gold pieces. At this time, Moffat & Company and Norris, Gregg, & Norris were the only private minters located in San Francisco.

This denomination does not usually appear much finer than this. This is an unusually attractive coin for the grade with even overall wear and plenty of bold definition remaining in the more protected areas of the design. The number of abrasions is not excessive, and the color is a rich, original, yellow-gold shade. A perfect candidate for inclusion in a circulated Territorial gold type set that requires a representation of Moffat & Company coinage. Listed on page 361 of the 2009 Guide Book. Includes an original flip from J.J. Teaparty Inc. (PCGS 10246)
