Rare 1870-CC Half Eagle1870-CC $5 VF20 PCGS. An exceptionally elusive issue from the Carson City mint, the 1870-CC is among the rarest Liberty half eagles in the entire series. With a mintage of just 7,675 pieces, it is the scarcest CC-mint half eagle and is the most difficult to locate in higher grades. Most specimens are well worn, and even this VF example is apt to be sought after by specialists. Nearly all known examples are heavily abraded, and many have heavy rim bruises. This piece is a pleasant exception, as the glossy, medium gold surfaces display only small, scattered abrasions that are typical of a coin that spent a number of years in commerce. A splendid rarity that should inspire intense competition among rare gold specialists. (NGC ID# 25WA, PCGS# 8320)
