Important 1870-CC Half Eagle, XF40

1870-CC $5 XF40 PCGS. Though not the lowest-mintage half eagle struck by Carson City, this date poses a considerable challenge for the collector and offers plenty of cachet. In his Gold Coins of the Carson City Mint, Doug Winter (2001) describes the issue: "The 1870-CC is a rare and desirable first-year-of-issue. It is usually seen in very low grades and an accurately graded Extremely Fine-40 is quite rare."
The piece offered here is just such a coin. The warm orange-gold surfaces show traces of luster at the obverse margins, and the piece presents beautifully, with a mark between stars 9 and 10 as the obverse's lone mentionable flaw. The upper reverse rim shows a few minor abrasions, but the center is pleasingly preserved. Despite light, even wear, the central devices retain excellent detail. A delightful prize for the Old West enthusiast. Population: 4 in 40, 24 finer (11/07).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25WA, PCGS# 8320)
