    Description

    1878-CC Eagle, Apricot-Gold AU55

    1878-CC $10 AU55 NGC. A low-mintage Carson City eagle issue, the 1878-CC was struck to the extent of only 3,244 pieces during a year in which the Nevada mint's focus was on the newly introduced Morgan or "Bland" silver dollars. Most surviving examples of this issue today grade no better than XF to Choice XF. This Choice AU NGC example is a pleasing exception, beaming with considerable mint luster remaining on appealing apricot-gold surfaces that additionally offer a decent strike in most areas. There are few mentionable marks for the grade. The two leading services combined report only a single Mint State example, an MS61 at NGC. Census: 7 in 55, 4 finer (7/16).
    From The Twelve Oaks Collection.(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 265K, PCGS# 8681)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
