    Elusive 1890-CC Liberty Head Ten, MS63

    1890-CC $10 MS63 PCGS. CAC. Carson City eagles are seldom seen at the MS63 level. Even the 1891-CC, which is relatively plentiful in AU58 to MS62, is a rarity any finer. But the 1890-CC is more difficult than the 1891-CC, as expected from its tiny mintage of 17,500 pieces. With patience, examples can be located in AU and lower Mint State grades. However, the arrival of a pleasing MS63 at auction is an important opportunity for Carson City specialists. The present straw-gold representative offers unbroken cartwheel sheen and is precisely struck. The only remotely reportable mark is a wispy line above the uppermost arrowhead. IN GOD WE TRUST is lightly die doubled, as always for the issue. Population: 9 in 63, 1 finer (8/07).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 266S, PCGS# 8718)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
