    1860 K-3 Clark, Gruber & Co. Ten, AU50
    Popular Colorado Gold Piece

    1860 $10 Clark, Gruber & Co. Ten Dollar AU50 PCGS. K-3, R.5. The firm of Clark, Gruber & Co. were active gold coin producers in the early days of the Colorado gold rush that followed on the heels of the great California Gold Rush. Although it was known as the Pikes Peak Gold Rush, and that mountain figures in the design of this coin, the actual gold producing region was about 85 miles to the north. Although gold was discovered in the region as early as 1835, the mining rush hit its peak in 1859 and 1860, the time that the Leavenworth, Kansas firm, Clark, Gruber & Co., established their banking and coining enterprise in Denver. The mintage of Clark, Gruber & Co. gold coins is unknown, but was undoubtedly substantial, considering the number of examples known today. One of those pieces is offered here, featuring lovely yellow-gold surfaces with considerable luster and delicate orange overtones. Scattered marks are consistent with the grade. Listed on page 409 of the 2018 Guide Book. Population: 9 in 50, 54 finer (11/17).
    From The Douglas Knight Collection. (NGC ID# ANK3, PCGS# 10137)
