Elusive 1876-CC Ten Dollar AU53

1876-CC $10 AU53 NGC. The 1874-CC is merely very scarce, but all other ten dollar Carson City issues from the 1870s are rare to very rare. The 1876-CC is typical in that it has a low mintage (only 4,696 pieces) and no Mint State survivors. The issue is also difficult to locate with a good strike. Branch mint gold expert Douglas Winter wrote in 2001, "the reverse is always soft on the neck feathers." The present piece, however, has well defined feathers on the eagle's neck, although the overall strike lacks absolute detail. The yellow-gold surfaces are slightly cloudy and exhibit myriad pockets of luster. A couple of hair-thin marks on the obverse merit passing mention, while the reverse is surprisingly unabraded given the hardships of Old West commerce. Census: 10 in 53, 11 finer (3/08).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 54UL, PCGS# 8675)
