Description

Glowing MS61 1879-CC Half Eagle
Tied for Finest Certified

1879-CC $5 MS61 NGC. Rusty Goe names the 1879-CC the most accessible half eagle from the first decade of the denomination's production in Carson City. This piece is certainly among the finest known, as neither NGC nor PCGS has certified a single coin finer (2/09). Glowing luster proceeds from both sides, and the bold strike and relatively abrasion-free surfaces are a definite plus. The average certified survivor only grades VF35 or a bit better. Clearly at the top of the Condition Census for the issue. Census: 3 in 61, 0 finer (2/09).
From The Belle Collection of Carson City Coinage.
(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25X8, PCGS# 8349)
