Lot Description
1873-CC $10 XF40 NGC. Variety 2-A. The first of two XF 1873-CC Eagles in this sale, the present example is attractively patinated in olive-copper hues. There is light overall rub on both sides, but one can still discern subdued traces of original luster in the more protected peripheral areas. True to form for the issue, this piece displays slightly bolder detail on the reverse than on the obverse, but we stress that no areas reveal detracting lack of definition. The only singularly mentionable abrasions are concentrated in the reverse field before the eagle's beak, and a strike through (as produced) is seen on the same side at the second T in STATES. The 1873-CC is similar in terms of both overall and high grade rarity to the 1872-CC. Survivors of the former delivery are infrequently offered in grades above the Choice VF level.
