    Description

    Conditionally Rare 1878-CC Eagle, AU55

    1878-CC $10 AU55 NGC. This is a conditionally rare Choice AU example of the low mintage 1878 Carson City eagle, which saw a limited production of just 3,244 pieces. The availability of gold bullion had decreased in Carson City, where efforts to coin the new Morgan silver dollar resulted in a mintage in excess of 2.2 million units. This piece displays attractively deep reddish coloration and mildly prooflike fields. The design elements show adequate striking definition, and the degree of highpoint wear seems typical, for the assigned grade level. A few small abrasions and wispy hairlines are observed on each side, but these are likewise consistent with the AU55 designation. Census: 9 in 55, 4 finer (11/07). (Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 265K, PCGS# 8681)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
