Description

Desirable 1879-CC Five Dollar, MS61
Tied for Finest Certified

1879-CC $5 MS61 NGC. As with any Carson City five issued prior to 1890, the 1879-CC is legitimately rare in AU and better condition and is more often than not offered in the VF to XF grade range. Just 17,281 pieces were issued, a figure that would increase substantially in two of the next three years to take some of the burden off the overworked San Francisco Mint.
This lustrous example is one of just six '79-CC half eagles to receive a Mint State rating from NGC and PCGS. The design features are well struck except for minor softness on the arrow feathers. Peach-gold patina residing on both sides is tinted with wisps of reddish-tan. A triangular mark under the eagle's neck serves as a definite pedigree identifier, as does a linear mark beneath the S of TRUST. Truly a desirable offering for the Carson City or rare gold specialist. Census: 3 in 61, none finer at either service (4/09).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25X8, PCGS# 8349)
