Description & Analysis

A paltry 3,244 $10 gold eagles were struck by the Carson City Mint in 1878. Of those, it is estimated that perhaps 50-75 still exist in all grades, making this a very rare issue indeed. NGC has only certified a total of just under 40 examples, the highest of which is a lone MS61. (12/2016)
