Description

    Very Scarce 1878-CC Ten Dollar AU53

    1878-CC $10 AU53 PCGS. Variety 1-A. Tiny die lumps between the EN of TEN and the lower reverse border are seen on all known examples. With the second lowest mintage in the series of a mere 3,244 pieces, the 1878-CC is not surprisingly one of the rarest Carson City Eagles. Like many of its predecessors, it is also known for poor striking details. Aside from this diagnostic deficiency, the present example is particularly nice for the issue. Yellow-gold surfaces retain significant portions of luster and the only abrasion worthy of note is a teardrop mark in the left reverse field. Population: 2 in 53, 4 finer (3/04).
    From The Barry Donnell Collection.(#8681) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 265K, PCGS# 8681)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
