    1878-CC Liberty Ten, AU50
    Rare Carson City Issue

    1878-CC $10 AU50 PCGS. Variety 1-A. With a scant mintage of just 3,244 coins, the 1878-CC is nearly as rare as the coveted 1870-CC and 1879-CC. Just a single Mint State coin is certified (an MS61 at NGC), and PCGS CoinFacts estimates just 60 to 75 pieces survive in all grades. Gold production at the Carson City Mint was in free-fall mode during the late 1870s, with Comstock gold production nearly exhausted, and few other gold deposits available to the Nevada mint.

    This is an attractive medium orange-gold About Uncirculated example, sharply struck and minimally abraded for the issue. Traces of mint luster are visible -- particularly on the reverse, which also displays attractive lilac accents. A sharp strike shows only light wear at the high points. Obverse marks are minuscule, although a few radial pinscratches exist on the reverse, including a long one that runs between A and T of STATES to the eagle's shoulder. Population: 5 in 50, 18 finer (11/19).
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 265K, PCGS# 8681)

    Weight: 16.72 grams
