||1891-CC $10 AU55 NGC. Variety 1-A. The Carson City Mint produced more than 100,000 gold eagles in 1891, the highest production figure for the denomination at that facility. This representative will appeal to mintmark collectors seeking a ten dollar gold piece from the storied Western Mint. The Choice AU coin here offered retains soft mint luster in the recesses, with medium green-gold patina overall. A faint old scratch in the upper-left obverse field is the only abrasion of note, and high-point wear is minimal. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
