Lot Description
1876-CC $10 AU53 PCGS. Only 4,696 pieces were produced for this Centennial year Carson City issue, which is actually a smaller mintage than that of the coveted 1870-CC Eagle. The 1876-CC is notorious among specialists for its soft strike, and the present piece possesses typical definition on the fletchings, lower stars, and hair curls. However, the eagle's plumage is crisp, and the abundant glimpses of semi-prooflike luster and the relatively unmarked surfaces attest to the About Uncirculated condition. Blushes of apricot-gold patina enrich the fields and portrait. A good selection for the advanced collector of CC mint gold. Population: 4 in 53, 5 finer (10/05).
