Description & Analysis

Although the Mint struck nearly 133,000 $10 gold eagles in 1888, most were immediately placed in circulation. Due to this, most examples seen by NGC have seen some light circulation, and the average grade is in the AU58-MS61 range. The highest graded examples at NGC are four MS63 coins. (10/2016)
