Description

Memorable 1876-CC Five Dollar, MS61

1876-CC $5 MS61 NGC. Rusty Goe's April 2003 census of the finest known 1876-CC half eagles includes just two Mint State pieces, a PCGS MS66 and an NGC MS61; the former coin, the Eliasberg specimen, comes with a footnote stating that the MS64 and MS65 grading events in the NGC Census Report belong to the Eliasberg coin. Six years later, this MS61 survivor remains the second-finest representative of the lowest-mintage Carson City half eagle issue, a status that seems unlikely to change. This bright lemon-gold piece has a sharply struck portrait with the characteristic die lump on the neck, left of the low-hanging curl. Though a number of faint marks and wispy abrasions are present in the fields, their collective impact on the eye appeal is minimal. A memorable coin for the Carson City enthusiast.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25WX, PCGS# 8340)
