Rusty Goe, in The Mint on Carson Street, notes that even though the 1873-CC is more costly and elusive today, " ... the low mintage of the 1871-CC merits notoriety within the ranks of elite numismatic classics," and the small number of survivors further fuels interest. Aside from a handful of Mint State examples that have been acknowledged for decades, a pleasing near-Mint survivor is the best that numismatists can hope to acquire, and the overall eye appeal of this coin makes it one of the most attractive representatives of that category.
Despite a touch of friction at the uppermost design elements, the coin offers delightful detail, particularly on the small details of the eagle's feathers. Ample, mildly reflective luster shines beneath delicate toning, peach and turquoise on the obverse with deeper midnight-blue and violet shadings across most of the reverse. The surfaces show few overt abrasions, and the wispy marks that appear in the fields do not distract. Rusty Goe concludes his section on the 1871-CC dollar by describing the issue as " ... one of the most fascinating dates in the entire Carson City set of coins--well worth acquiring." For a high-end example such as the present coin, those words are especially true. Census: 5 in 58, 4 finer (4/08).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24ZH, PCGS# 6967)
