    1875-CC Eagle, AU50
    Only Branch Mint Issue of the Year

    1875-CC $10 AU50 NGC. Variety 2-B. The 1875-CC is similar to the 1876-CC in terms of overall rarity. In About Uncirculated, the 1875-CC seems a touch more available. There are an estimated 125 to 150 pieces known with most in lower grades. Population figures from both services for coins graded AU50 to AU55 appear heavily inflated by resubmissions. This can be verified by the lack of auction records for the 1875-CC in this grade range for the last five or so years.

    Since the beginning of 2012, just two AU50 1875-CC eagles have been sold at auction. In January 2012, Heritage sold a PCGS coin for $12,650 while in January 2015, Heritage sold this exact coin for $12,925. The present coin is about average for the date, with weakness on the hair, facial features, and left stars. The reverse displays more detail, but wear shows more on the high points. The surfaces are an attractive medium greenish-gold, and abrasions are minimal for the grade.
    Ex: Fort Worth Signature (Heritage, 3/2010), lot 2453; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2015), lot 7230, where it brought $12,925.
    From The Harvey B. Jacobson, Jr. Collection of Liberty Eagles. (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2688, PCGS# 8673)
