    1878-CC Ten Dollar, AU53
    Only 3,244 Pieces Produced

    1878-CC $10 AU53 PCGS. Variety 1-A. The low mintage of only 3,244 coins gives the CC collector their first awareness that this will prove to be a difficult coin to locate, regardless of what grade piece is sought. Over the past 20 years or so, the number extant has risen slightly from an estimated 45 to 55 pieces to a higher number of 60 to 75 coins. That is of little help, though, to the collector assembling a uniformly graded set of CC tens in AU condition. The increase in the estimated numbers is mostly for coins in the VF-XF grade range. This particular piece shows the usual blunt strike, but the yellow-gold surfaces are remarkably free from abrasions. Population: 9 in 53 (1 in 53+), 9 finer (11/19).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 265K, PCGS# 8681)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
