    AU50 1879-CC Ten Dollar
    One of 1,762 Pieces

    1879-CC $10 AU50 PCGS. Variety 1-A. After the 1874-CC issue, production of eagles at Carson City went into a steep slide. Production leveled off at slightly over the 3,000 mark between 1877 and 1878, but as Rusty Goe wrote in The Mint on Carson Street, "Just when it seemed that mintages for $10 eagles at the Carson City Mint could not decline any further, 1879 arrived."
    Just 1,762 examples were produced, and Goe's Condition Census extends down to the AU50 level given to this piece. The yellow-orange surfaces are moderately abraded but also broadly lustrous, with watery reflectivity visible in the peripheral protected areas. The strike shows typical softness on the outer stars, but the central devices are better-defined. Population: 7 in 50, 4 finer (7/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 265N, PCGS# 8684)
