Lot 3122 of the Stack's Bowers Galleries 2022 NYINC Auction features a very rare  type relating to the Saecular Games (festivities that were held every 110 years following the tradition enacted by Augustus). This wholesome specimen presents an appealing degree of quality and beauty that is not often encountered in the coinage of Domitian, especially his gold emissions. The offered coin is from the Dr. Michael Rogers Collection, Part II and has been graded by NGC as Extremely Fine, with Strike: 5/5 and Surface: 4/5.​

​While coin collecting is a hobby for all, the scope and quality of coin collections can depend a great deal on taste, budget, and accessibility. It is a dream of many collectors to put together a cabinet of such scope and import that its name is still referenced years after the coinage is dispersed. Some of the most famous pedigrees still inspire awe: Brand, Hutton-Czapski, Eliasberg, Norweb, and Farouk are among this number. Most such collections were assembled by a wealthy elite, sometimes even royalty. Among these is the collection of the Grand Duke Georgii Mikhailovich who assembled one of the most impressive cabinets of Russian coinage.​

​The 1870-CC eagle is an eagerly sought rarity in the Liberty Head ten-dollar gold series. It ranks as the very rarest of the Carson City issues, outranking even the lower mintage 1879-CC.
