1861 Clark, Gruber & Co. (Denver, Colorado) $10 Gold. PCGS graded VF-25. Lightly toned, the fields display warm orange-gold color while the smooth surface of the worn high points contrasts with lighter typical golden color. Choice fields and surfaces abound (a wonderful exception to the usual abraded condition of these) and bidders may want to make a notation in their catalogs. The firm of Clark, Gruber & Co., Leavenworth, Kansas bankers, established a branch in Denver following discovery of gold deposits in the area in the mountains to the west. From that start would develop Colorado's largest mint, an operation which later became the foundation for the U.S. Denver Mint. Partners were Austin M. Clark, Milton Edward Clark, and Emanuel Henry Gruber and their $10 gold pieces were issued in 1860 and 1861 (PCGS # 10141) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,300.

Realized $3,680
