1879-CC $10 Liberty. NGC graded AU-58. Nice light golden toning. Luster dances a lively two-step across much of the frosty surfaces of this attractive '79-CC eagle. Nicely struck, in fact, more than just nicely struck, we'd go further and say "bold" and decidedly choice for the grade. Try as we might, we have difficulty locating any marks. About the only one that is visible is a three-dot "chattermark" below the M of AMERICA on the reverse. Scarce in all grades and rare in lovely About Uncirculated condition like this; just less than two thousand examples of the date were struck. Certainly the number of survivors at the high end is exceedingly small in terms of the popularity of Carson City coinage: 1,762 minted. Pop 5; 1 finer in 62. (PCGS # 8684) .
Estimated Value $30,000 - 33,000.

Realized $31,050
