Description

Extremely Scarce 1870-CC Ten Dollar XF45

1870-CC $10 XF45 PCGS. Variety 1-A. The premier Ten Dollar issue from the Carson City facility and profound rarity among not only Eagles, but all CC gold issues. Starting with a tiny mintage of 5,908 pieces, attrition has taken its toll on all but a few dozen survivors, nearly all of which grade XF or less. Akers states that "only the famous Double Eagle of the same date surpasses the 1870-CC Eagle as the rarest of all Carson City gold coins." This attractive reddish-golden example is far better struck than the typical '70-CC and, although numerous, there are no overly distracting surface marks. Due to the importance of the offering, we will point out a few milling marks in the lower right obverse field and an abrasion that obliterates a portion of the first C in the mintmark. Always an issue that stirs up great interest among specialists in branch mint gold and Carson City coinage. Population: 5 in 45, 6 finer (10/03).(#8658) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 264U, PCGS# 8658)
