Description

1883-CC Five Dollar, AU58
Tied at the Lower End of the Condition Census

1883-CC $5 AU58 NGC. The 1883-CC half eagle has a small mintage of 12,958 pieces, but it is much scarcer than suggested by the production numbers. Most 1883-CC fives saw some degree of circulation, most of them stayed in the channels of commerce for a considerable amount of time. Only 100-125 pieces are believed extant in all grades today, and of that paltry estimate a mere 23-28 coins are thought to still exist in AU grades. Mint State coins are very rare with only 3-4 pieces believed known. In Doug Winter's latest work on the Carson City mint gold coins, he lists multiple AU58 coins as tied at the lower end of the Condition Census. Lacking the usual heavy abrasions seen on this issue, the only notable marks are a couple in the lower left obverse field. The surfaces are reddish-gold with considerable mint luster surrounding the devices. The usual slight softness of strike is seen on Liberty's hair around the face and the eagle's neck feathers.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25XL, PCGS# 8362)

This is why I like purchasing from Heritage, you are so customer oriented and with your size and my meager purchases it always amazes me how quickly you respond.
