1870-CC $5 VF20 PCGS....
Coveted 1870-CC Half Eagle, VF201870-CC $5 VF20 PCGS. While the double eagles get most of the press, all of the gold denominations struck at the Carson City Mint in 1870 are low-mintage rarities. While the half eagle has the highest mintage of the three, at 7,675 pieces struck, today the 1870-CC five dollar is less accessible than a number of its Charlotte and Dahlonega predecessors. This midrange representative has great eye appeal for a "mere" VF20, with strong orange-gold color and traces of peripheral luster. While both sides show a number of small to moderate abrasions, no one flaw is singularly distracting. Population: 6 in 20, 44 finer (3/10).
