    Choice XF 1878-CC Ten Dollar
    Mintage 3,244 Pieces

    1878-CC $10 XF45 PCGS. Variety 1-A. While Philadelphia and San Francisco saw ten dollar gold coinage production surge in 1878, the opposite happened in Carson City, according to Rusty Goe's The Mint on Carson Street. Instead, output slipped to just 3,244 pieces, and Goe estimates that only 70 to 80 of those coins survive regardless of grade. Any AU example would have made Goe's census, though heavy resubmissions have inflated today's numbers. Nonetheless, this Choice XF example is well worth owning. Its apricot-gold surfaces are luminous overall with glimmers of original luster hidden in the protected areas of the reverse. Softly struck with light abrasions on and around the portrait but great overall eye appeal.(Registry values: N4719)
