1878 Liberty Eagle PCGS MS64+

Just 1 Graded Higher

When one just looks at the mintage of 73,700 pieces, the 1878 would appear to be moderately scarce, but nothing would tip off the collector to just how rare it actually is in higher grades. Our records show that we’ve auctioned only six MS64/64+ examples in the past ten years, attesting to the issue’s extreme rarity at this grade level. This one is particularly well struck. The PCGS population is just 3 with 1 higher.

1878-CC Liberty Double Eagle NGC AU53

Scarce CC $20 Lib.

Double eagle production at the Carson City Mint declined drastically in 1878, when a meager mintage of 13,180 pieces was accomplished. The coins were released into circulation and fulfilled their intended purpose admirably in the hard-money economy of the western United States. The 1878-CC is one of the scarcest issues of the Carson City series today, both in terms of total number of coins known and high-grade rarity.

1878-CC Liberty Eagle NGC XF40

Rare $10 from Carson City

While Philadelphia and San Francisco saw ten-dollar gold coinage production surge in 1878, the opposite happened in Carson City. There,  output instead, slipped to just 3,244 pieces. Over the past 20 years or so, the number thought to be extant has risen slightly from an estimated 45 to 55 pieces, to a higher number of 60 to 75 coins. Heritage has auctioned just a single (PCGS) XF40 example in the past ten years.

1878 Liberty Eagle NGC MS65

The Highest Graded at NGC

When one just looks at the mintage of 73,700 pieces, the 1878 would appear to be moderately scarce but nothing would tip off the collector to just how rare it actually is in high grades. Our records show merely six MS64 appearances for the 1878 eagle in the past 10 years, attesting to the issue’s extreme rarity at this grade level. Both the NGC and PCGS population reports show just a single MS65 example with none graded higher.
