Description

PCGS 1878-CC AU 50. The '78-CC is the rarest Carson City half eagle, and is an extreme condition rarity above XF. AU coins were unknown to both Akers (1978) and Breen (1988). This is the only AU 50 certified by PCGS (5/94), and NGC has graded only 2 pieces in this grade--none are finer by either service--making this piece tied for finest certified. There are no characteristics in the literature for the "typical" '78-CC half eagle. This piece is well struck in most areas with only slight softness evident on the hair curls and eagle's neck. Light in color overall with just a touch of red evident, there are noticeable portions of mint luster still around the devices. Only light field marks are present, the most noticeable abrasion is a mark across the shield on the reverse. Of great interest to specialists. (NGC ID# 25X5, PCGS# 8346)
