Description & Analysis

The 1879-CC $10 gold eagle had the lowest mintage of any gold coin struck in Carson City at a mere 1,762 pieces. Of those, it is estimated that less than 50 have survived until today. Most are seen in the VF-XF range, as almost all of these pieces ended up in circulation. Only a single example has been graded by NGC as mint state, a lone MS62.
