Ten Dollar Gold Coins or Eagles were made from 1795 to 1933. Several different types were made as follows: --- Capped Bust to Right, Small Eagle from 1795 to 1797 --- Capped Bust to Right, Heraldic Eagle from 1787 to 1804 --- Liberty Head from 1838 to 1907 --- Indian Head from 1907 to1933.
Ten Dollar Gold Coins were made in all the operating mints of the time and many rare and scarce dates exist.
Small Stars Obverse. Sharp detail and no adjustment marks with bright antique gold surfaces. Very attractive for the grade and housed in an early light blue label holder.
Large Stars Obverse. Yellow-gold surfaces radiate with brilliant frosty luster. The strike is sharp and distinct with attractive surfaces that are devoid of significant marks. While 37,449 pieces were minted, it is estimated only 300-400 still survive. A quality example that would be an excellent addition to any collection.
1839 9 Over 8. Large Letters. Head of 1838. Pleasant yellow-gold surfaces with ample remnant luster and a sharp strike. The 1838 rendition of Miss Liberty is slightly different with a more ornate look. A very scarce and desirable issue with a mintage of only 25,801. Most known pieces are in the the VF-XF range which makes this nice AU-55 very desirable.
1839 9 Over 8. Type of 1838. Pleasant yellow-gold surfaces exhibit nearly full luster, marks of no significance, and a sharp strike. A very scarce and desirable issue with a mintage of only 25,801. Most known pieces are in the the VF-XF range which makes this nice AU-55 very desirable.
Sharp detail with pleasing problem-free surfaces. A better date and a popular early 'O' mint.
Sharp detail with bright yellow-gold surfaces. A scarce date with a modest mintage of 51,000.
Well detailed with lustrous yellow-gold surfaces.
Just 3,990 minted and fewer than 100 extant with a single NGC MS-60 being the highest graded. This is a well detailed example with considerable bright yellow-gold luster.
Just 8,085 coins minted during the second year of operation at the Carson City Mint. About 100 are known. This example has strong detail and a glimmer of luster remaining on orange-gold surfaces.
Very scarce with just 4,543 minted and 60-80 known survivors. The quality standards were poor off the press plus the issue saw heavy circulation. As a result most known coins are well circulated and heavily abraded. There are no known mint state coins. This high-end VF is a pleasing example without the heavy abrasions we just referenced. The detail is also strong for the grade.
Very rare in any condition with just 10,000 minted and a low survival rate of mostly well worn coins. PCGS and NGC combined have graded 1 mint state coin! This is a pleasing problem-free AU with bold detail.
Attractive yellow-gold surfaces that exhibit ample remnant luster and a strong strike. The look is far cleaner than would be expected. Marks are few and minor with none of significance. The 1878-CC is among the rarest eagles from not only the Carson City Mint but also in the entire $10 eagle series. Of 3,244 pieces minted, only a scant 60-75 pieces are believed to still survive. Only 12 pieces have graded finer at NGC with the highest graded being a single MS-61 example. Pieces seldom turn up and are avidly sought when they appear. A prime selection and addition to any advanced collection.
Brilliant yellow-gold surfaces exhibit ample luster and a nearly mint state look. Marks are minor with none of significance and the strike is solid. A very scarce Carson City date with only 6,764 pieces minted. This example is a very lofty grade with only 5 pieces graded mint state at NGC, the highest being 2 pieces graded MS-62.
Brilliant yellow-gold surfaces that exhibit nearly full reflective luster and a sharp strike. Only 10,820 pieces were struck and all grade levels are very elusive. This is a high grade and very desirable example with nothing having graded finer than MS-63 at either service.
Solid detail and pleasing original surfaces. Only 12,000 minted.
Well struck with lustrous straw-gold surfaces and fewer marks than expected for the grade. Tied for the finest graded at NGC!
Rich satiny luster and a great strike with strong eye appeal. The finest graded at PCGS are MS-64 and this lovely coin is very nearly that quality!
A pleasing example of this scarce date which saw a mintage of just 17,500. This example is fully struck and lustrous with fewer marks than typically seen for the grade.
Vibrant yellow-gold luster with fewer marks than typically seen and a sharp strike.
Brilliant yellow-gold surfaces and a sharp strike. Very lustrous for the grade. A desirable Carson City Mint date with super eye appeal!
