Well Struck 1876-CC Ten Dollar, AU53

1876-CC $10 AU53 NGC. The 1876-CC ten dollar has a slightly higher survival rate than its low mintage of 4,696 pieces might indicate, perhaps resulting from many being saved as a result of the 1876 Centennial year. Yet it is difficult to obtain in About Uncirculated grades, and no Mint State survivors are known.
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, is well defined in this area. Although the overall strike lacks absolute definition, the remaining design elements exhibit above-average detail, and the yellow-gold surfaces display myriad pockets of luster. A few hair-thin marks on the obverse merit passing mention, while the reverse is surprisingly minimally unabraded, given the hardships of Old West commerce. Census: 10 in 53, 11 finer (4/09).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 265D, PCGS# 8675)
