Lot Description
1891-CC $10 MS64 NGC. Winter 1-A. Virtually every Heritage signature sale will contain a Mint State '91-CC Eagle, a popular Carson City issue of which at least 500 Uncirculated representatives are believed extant. A tendency for heavy abrasions keeps most of these in the MS60-62 range and advancing to the MS 63 tier eliminates at least 80 percent of the population. Take it a step further and the 1891-CC Ten Dollar emerges as a very scarce issue, as only a handful of Choice pieces and no Gems have passed through the certification services. This magnificent example could not be more sharply struck or frosty and is beautifully tinged in reddish patina. There are only a few well scattered surface marks, none of which merit individual mention. An exceptional coin for the Carson City gold specialist. Population: 7 in 64, 0 finer (4/03).
