1872-CC $10 Liberty XF40 PCGS
The Carson City Mint delivered only 4,600 eagles in 1872, and what few examples have survived are among the rarest products of the fabled Nevada branch mint. In grades above VF 35, this issue compares favorably with the much more publicized 1870-CC. All of the major features on the current example are sharp, and the overall appearance is one of original red-gold hues, with what can be described as original crusty surfaces. Noticeably abraded, both sides are, however, remarkably problem-free for a circulated CC-mint gold coin, showing only superficial blemishes. With few coins graded AU, and none in Mint State, this specimen will certainly please and gold collectors and Carson City specialists alike .
