    1872-CC Liberty Head Eagle, AU55
    Rarest Carson City Eagle

    1872-CC $10 AU55 NGC. CAC. The 1872-CC is the rarest Carson City eagle, both in absolute terms and from the standpoint of condition rarity. The original mintage was reported as 4,600 pieces, and Doug Winter estimates a surviving population of only 60-70 examples today. Coins in AU55 condition are very rare. Current population data reflects seven AU55 graded pieces at NGC, with none finer, while PCGS has certified only two pieces in AU55, with two finer (7/10).
    The present coin is one of the finest survivors of this rare issue, with only slight traces of wear on the highest points of the design. The strike is especially good for a Carson City issue of this time period, with much fine detail present on Liberty's hair and the star centers. The surfaces are an attractive greenish-gold color, and only minor abrasions are evident.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2652, PCGS# 8664)
