Description

1872-CC Half Eagle, AU50
Variety 1-B

1872-CC $5 AU50 PCGS. Variety 1-B. A low mintage of 16,980 pieces ensures the rarity of this early Carson City issue. No examples are certified as Mint State, and AU coins are rare. PCGS has graded one piece each as AG3 and Good 4, which demonstrates the need for lower denomination gold coins in Old West commerce. The present coin, however, has a broad band of luster across both borders, and its peach-gold surfaces lack relevant marks. The strike shows blending on the curls and the eagle's shield, typical for CC-mint coins of the era. Population: 10 in 50, 11 finer (3/13).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25WG, PCGS# 8326)
