    1879-CC Ten Dollar, Sharp AU58
    Condition Census for This Rare Issue

    1879-CC $10 AU58 NGC. Variety 1-A. The 1879-CC eagle boasts the lowest mintage of the series from this mint at 1,762 pieces. Likely fewer than 60 examples survive in all grades, and the rarity of auction appearances easily rivals that of the more popular 1870-CC. The 1879-CC was once unknown in Mint State, but Garrett and Guth, in their gold coin Encyclopedia, recount that in 2005, a coin was discovered in Alaska that later graded MS62 by NGC. The present near-Mint representative ranks well-within the Condition Census as one of the second finest known.

    The strike is sharp with little high-point friction over the devices, and areas of prooflike reflectivity remain in the protected regions of the fields. Light surface chatter is remarkably unobtrusive. The appearance is in direct contrast to norms for the issue, which Garrett and Guth describe as "usually found with a poor strike, heavy wear, or excessive bagmarks." This is a rare and important opportunity for the Carson City gold specialist. Census: 5 in 58, 1 finer (10/16).
