    Two-Toned 1875-CC Ten, AU53
    The Norweb Specimen

    1875-CC $10 AU53 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Norweb. From its opening in 1870, the Carson City Mint never produced a five-figure mintage until the 1874-CC, at 16,767 pieces -- but for the 1875-CC the mintage once again plunged, to 7,715 coins. The coin-starved Western economy made good use of large-denomination gold pieces, and today the average survivor is about XF40; Mint State pieces apparently number only three, including one MS62 at PCGS and an MS60 and MS63 at NGC. This AU53 example is one of the nicest PCGS coins we have handled in several years, with two-toned surfaces showing deep orange-gold prevailing over bluish accents. A smattering of ticks and nicks, none severe, is in keeping with the "almost Choice AU" grade. Population: 11 in 53, 6 finer (6/12).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2688, PCGS# 8673)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
