Description & Analysis

The 1891-CC $10 gold eagle had the highest mintage of any gold eagle struck at the Carson City Mint at some 103,732 pieces. However, many have been circulated or spent time in bags, which means that most uncirculated examples are in the MS61-62 range. MS63 examples are rare, and choice or higher coins are nearly impossible to find.
