Lot Description
1874-CC $10 AU55 NGC. Peach-tinged luster is extensive, unusual for a Carson City ten dollar piece from the 1870s, a decade is littered with ultra-low mintage CC-mint issues. The present example also benefits from a crisp strike and a near-absence of detrimental marks. Only two 1874-CC eagles have been certified as Mint State, an NGC MS65 formerly from the Warren Miller collection offered by Heritage in October 1995, and a PCGS MS63 once owned by Louis Eliasberg, Sr. and Harry W. Bass, Jr. While the present piece has witnessed brief circulation, its eye appeal is certain to please the advanced specialist. Census: 18 in 55, 3 finer (5/08).
