    Description

    1871-CC Liberty Eagle, AU55
    Small but Unknown Mintage

    1871-CC $10 AU55 NGC. The 1871-CC eagle boasts a low mintage of 7,185 pieces, according to Rusty Goe in The Mint on Carson Street, and the issue is rare in any grade today. The Guide Book records a mintage of 8,085 coins, and Doug Winter places production at 5,908 coins.
    Goe estimates a survival of 120 to 150 coins and Winter estimates a surviving population of 90-100 examples. The present coin is sharply struck, showing only slight wear on Liberty's hair. The surfaces are light orange-gold, and traces of satiny mint luster are evident in sheltered areas. A few minor nicks can be detected on Liberty's cheek, and a scattering of insignificant handling marks is present on both sides. Currently, NGC has certified only nine coins in AU55, with 10 finer, while PCGS has graded just three examples in this grade, with two finer (3/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 264X, PCGS# 8661)

    You gave me several alternatives and explained the pros and cons of each. I concluded that you were someone I could trust and that you would do a good job for me. And you sure did!
