    Description

    1870-CC Ten Dollar, Fine 12
    First-Year Carson City Issue

    1870-CC $10 Fine 12 NGC. Variety 2-A. A classic rarity in the Liberty eagle series, this issue is high on the want lists of Carson City, type, and date collectors alike. The low mintage of 5,908 pieces circulated heavily, although not many survived as gracefully as this F12 example. Pleasing orange-gold surfaces display smooth wear, yet all the devices are well-detailed for the grade. Feather detail remains on the wings and the scroll is sharp and readable. This is an excellent, rare date collector coin, seldom seen so original and nice. Census: 2 in 12, 28 finer (2/14)..
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 264U, PCGS# 8658)

    Weight: 16.72 grams
