    Description

    1870-CC Ten Dollar, XF Details
    Collectible Example of This Rarity

    1870-CC $10 -- Cleaning -- PCGS Genuine. XF Details. Variety 1-B. The Carson City Mint's inaugural ten dollar gold issue is a famous rarity. Fewer than 60 coins are believed to survive from a mintage of 5,908 pieces, and none are known in Mint State. Survivors are dispersed throughout the VF and XF grade levels with the finest pieces grading AU55. Even if located, most of these will be out of reach for budget-restricted collectors. The present example, however, displays faint hairlines on each side that expose a light cleaning, which keeps it from a numeric grade and makes it more accessible than XF coins otherwise are. The design shows grade-consistent wear, and each side is cast in light abrasions, as usual. There is a small rim bump below the 18 in the date, almost unworthy of mention.
