Description

Near-Mint 1874-CC Five Dollar
Unusually Clean Surfaces

1874-CC $5 AU58 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1-A. Two obverse and four reverse dies were used to strike the 1874-CC half eagle issue, an unusual number considering the limited mintage of just 21,198 pieces; perhaps the Carson City Mint had an uncommon run of bad luck with reverse die failures. Positional varieties aside, the 1874-CC half eagle as a whole is a challenging issue in AU grades and an indisputable condition rarity in near-Mint, as this coin is. While light but distinct wear affects Liberty's brow and other high points, the apricot-laced surfaces remain immensely lustrous and the central details are bold. A tiny horizontal abrasion underlining the first C in the mintmark hardly would be noticeable on an AU53 or AU55 coin but stands out as one of the few marks on this extraordinarily clean coin, the sort of AU58 that collectors dream of owning. Population: 7 in 58, 2 finer (6/12).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25WP, PCGS# 8334)
