    1882-CC Liberty Ten, AU58
    Sharp, Partially Reflective Surfaces

    1882-CC $10 AU58 PCGS. Variety 2-A. Misplaced digits in the dentils and a prominent die scratch at the lower end of the first vertical shield stripe are interesting characteristics of the sole die marriage used to strike the 1882-CC eagles, shown here in its early stages. The Carson City Mint produced large mintages of half eagles and double eagles in 1882, but precious few ten dollar pieces. Just 6,764 coins were struck -- a situation the 1882-CC shares with several other Carson City tens from the 1870s and 1880s.

    This is a gleaming, nearly Mint State example, with sharply struck devices and little evidence of wear. Light abrasions dot Liberty's portrait and the fields, which display a combination of reflectivity and mint frost. Much mint luster remains despite a brief stay in circulation. Pleasing honey-gold color adds to the considerable eye appeal. Few 1882-CC eagles are finer at either PCGS or NGC. Population: 20 in 58 (1 in 58+), 5 finer (11/19).
