1871-CC 10c PCGS Good-6 - Key Carson City Seated Dime

DLRC #: 381407 // PCGS #: 4654

From a very low mintage of just 20,100 coins, the 1871-CC is one of the great key dates to the Seated dime set. So scarce, in fact, that in over 30 years of business, we've handled fewer than half a dozen of these in ALL grades. Usually seen with poor surfaces, we jumped at the chance to obtain this solid Good+ coin (actually has VG details). While it's not perfect, it's about as nice and wholesome as you'll find for this date. A great coin that we suspect more than a few collectors have been seeking for a long time.
