    1880-CC Ten, MS61
    One of the Finer Examples Known

    1880-CC $10 MS61 NGC. Variety 1-B. One of the few relatively available Carson City eagles, the 1880-CC's survival numbers have increased in recent years thanks to a few coins from European holdings. Still, Mint State examples are rare, with many coins falling into the baggy XF to AU categories. Most of the 11,190-piece mintage was released into domestic circulation, where the rigors of commerce in the old West took a toll.

    This Uncirculated example shows only light bagmarks from transportation and storage. Lustrous straw-gold color is evenly dispersed across both sides. Most 1880-CC examples are sharply struck and the present coin is no exception, with well-defined stars and central motifs. Census: 4 in 61 (1 in 61+), 2 finer (11/19).
