Lot Description
1876-CC $10 AU55 NGC. The double attractiveness is equal parts Carson City and Centennial date, although the low mintage of 4,696 pieces for the 1876-CC eagle should be mentioned as well. PCGS has never certified a Mint State example of this issue, and neither has NGC. This Choice AU NGC example is among eight at this level, with three in AU58 finer (9/12). Even, rich reddish-gold color appears over both sides. The fields still show mild reflectivity, probably from the dies' not wearing down from such a low mintage. The strike is a bit soft in the centers, but the surfaces are lightly marked overall. A teardrop-shaped planchet flaw appears above the juncture of the left (facing) wing and the eagle's body.
