Description & Analysis

The San Francisco Mint struck 228,000 $10 gold eagles in 1885, a respectable sum for the branch mint. However, most of those either entered circulation or were heavily abraded in bags. Today, the issue is common through MS62, and becomes scarce in MS63. At the choice level, it is nearly impossible to find.
