Lot Description
1882 $10 MS64 PCGS. CAC. Like the 1881, the 1882 eagle was a high-mintage affair, produced at a time when the Treasury was consciously trying to promote the circulation of gold coins in denominations lower than twenty dollars. The 1882 saw a production in excess of 2.3 million pieces, yet this MS64 piece is one of only 34 such submissions at PCGS, and there is a single "miracle coin" finer, in MS66 PCGS (12/12). Rich luster is evident over beautiful copper-orange surfaces that are well-struck and relatively mark-free. A great type coin.
