    1877 Ten Dollar, MS60
    Only Three Mint State Survivors
    Blatantly Prooflike, Ultra Low Mintage

    1877 $10 MS60 PCGS. The Philadelphia Mint continued a trend in 1877 that began in 1875: the output of only a few hundred ten dollar gold coins per year. Specifically, that total amounted to 797 circulation strikes in 1877. This issue is nearly as rare as the 1876, while the 1875 is still the hands-down key. Only three 1877 eagles are known in Uncirculated condition: this MS60 and two MS61 representatives graded by PCGS.

    As with the two other Mint State survivors, this Uncirculated ten dollar gold piece is blatantly prooflike with deeply reflective fields. The devices are fully struck over reddish-gold surfaces, and marks are fewer in number and more minor in nature than expected. A couple of small marks on the reverse likely prevent a higher grade. Population: 1 in 60, 2 finer (1/18).
