1861 Clark, Gruber & Co. (Denver, Colorado) $10 Gold. PCGS graded AU-58. Lovely light golden toning with semi reflective fields, and another formidable example of Colorado gold with sharp, crisp detail throughout. The PIKES PEAK legend on Liberty's coronet is completely readable, and as well, all her hair curls are plain to see, including those at the top of the head, on the hair bun, and dangling down her neck. The eagle on these tends to be a trifle shallow in detail at the upper neck, but generally, this particular specimen was above the rest in its overall excellence and careful preservation by former owners. It also carries the famous Garrett cache! Pop 14; 1 finer in 61 (PCGS # 10141) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.
Ex: Bowers and Ruddy The Garrett Collection Part I Nov. 1979 Lot 539. Before Ex: The Col. James W. Ellsworth Collection Ex: The Brentwood Park Estate.

Realized $17,825
