1853 $10 Assay Office Ten Dollar, 900 Thous. PCGS AU53

Local merchants petitioned the U.S. Assay Office to issue lower denomination gold coins in early 1853 to deal with a chronic shortage of small change in the region. The Assay Office complied, issuing $10 and $20 coinage on an emergency basis from February 23 to March 1. But these coins were necessarily of lower fineness than the .900 alloy specified by the federal government because the firm had no parting acids on hand. When a supply of parting acids finally arrived, the Assay Office produced $10 coins with the proper fineness between March and April of 1853. They are classified as the K-16 variety in Don Kagin’s series reference and are quite elusive and prized today. In hand, this one’s color is lighter than seen in our images. The PCGS population is just 2 with 14 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.

1871-CC Liberty Eagle NGC AU53

A Rare CC $10 Lib.

The Comstock Lode is famous for its vast yield of silver ore, yet gold was found in abundance as well. In 1871, a large amount of gold was taken from Comstock, although most of it went to the San Francisco Mint. Carson City received a mere 25% of the gold output. South America was the beneficiary of some 1871-CC eagles, although most of the 8,085-piece mintage circulated in local commerce. Few Mint State pieces were saved or otherwise preserved, with just three Uncirculated examples shown on the combined NGC and PCGS population reports.

1892 Liberty Double Eagle PCGS AU53

Rare AU from 92

The 1892 has the last ultra-low mintage in the Liberty double eagle series, just 4,430 coins. Contemporary collectors paid little attention to high-denomination gold, and those that did often sought out proofs, not circulation strikes. As a result, this issue is about as rare in Mint State as its mintage would suggest, and even AU coins are scarce.

1839/39-C Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC AU53

“C”-ing Double “39’s”

The 3 and 9 in the date are noticeably recut north on this variety, one of the scarcer varieties for the issue. Doug Winter estimates as many as 300 to 400 examples survive from a mintage of 18,140 coins, although the population thins considerably in the upper AU range, and true Mint State coins are rare.

First Year of Issue 1838 Liberty Eagle PCGS AU53

The Philadelphia Mint struck a meager total of 7,200 ten dollar gold pieces in 1838, after a 34-year hiatus. The coins featured Christian Gobrecht’s brand new Liberty design, which was modified slightly the next year, creating a short-lived design subtype for collectors. As might be expected, the 1838 Liberty eagle is an elusive issue, especially in high grade. 

The PCGS population stands at just 3 with 19 higher. The example offered here is lighter, brighter and flashier than seen in our images. Listed at $23,000 in the CDN CPG and $21,000 in the PCGS price guide.
