Description & Analysis

The Carson City Mint only struck 17,500 gold eagles in 1890. This low mintage has made this date one of the hardest CC $10 eagles to locate. Most examples show heavy bag marks and abrasion. This is clearly evident in the NGC census, which shows the most common uncirculated grade as a mere MS61. MS63 is the highest grade NGC has given an 1890-CC gold eagle thus far.
