Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint struck 76,270 $10 eagles in 1896. Many at least briefly saw time in circulation, as evidenced by the grades seen by NGC. Most submitted are in the lower uncirculated range from MS61-MS63. Above that, this issue becomes quite scarce, and only a single example has been graded by NGC in gem. (9/2016)
