    1873-CC Ten Dollar, AU50
    Challenging CC-Mint Issue

    1873-CC $10 AU50 PCGS. Variety 2-A. From a minuscule mintage of 4,543 pieces, the 1873-CC Liberty eagle is a scarce-to-rare issue in all grades today. Surprisingly for such a small production total, two die varieties are known for the issue (Doug Winter thought there were three varieties, but his obverse 1 and 2 seem to be the same die, in different states). This coin represents the more available Variety 2-A, with the second C in the mintmark over the space between E and N in TEN.

    The present coin is an impressive AU specimen, with only light wear on the well-detailed design elements. The pleasing orange-gold surfaces show the expected number of minor abrasions for the grade and retain traces of original mint luster in sheltered areas. Population: 11 in 50, 7 finer (7/19).
    From The Pelican Collection. (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 53M6, PCGS# 8667)

    Weight: 16.72 grams
