Rare 1872-CC Ten Dollar, AU55

1872-CC $10 AU55 NGC. Some controversy exists over the mintage of the 1872-CC ten dollar. Walter Breen (1988) and the 2009 Guide Book report 4,600 pieces; Rusty Goe (2003) gives a figure of 5,500; and Douglas Winter (2001) says 5,908. Regardless of which figure one chooses to believe, the 1872-CC is considered one of the rarest Carson City eagles, both in terms of absolute and condition rarity.
NGC and PCGS have certified only 99 examples of this issue in all levels of preservation, with the modal grade in the XF40-XF45 range. Thirty pieces fall into the AU spectrum, and none are rated Mint State.
The peach-gold surfaces of this Choice AU specimen are accented in reddish-gold and sky-blue, and display traces of luster in the protected areas. A better-than-average strike leaves relatively strong detail on the design elements. All stars, for example, show sharp radials; they are flat on many specimens. Only the hair over Liberty's ear and the right (facing) claw reveal the usual softness. Evenly distributed light marks are in line with a large gold coin that saw brief circulation. Census: 7 in 55, 0 finer (4/09).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2652, PCGS# 8664)
