    1872-CC Eagle, VF35
    Collector-Grade Example

    1872-CC $10 VF35 PCGS. Variety 1-B. The rarity of this date can be grasped by the fact that this 1872-CC is the single lowest graded coin in the remarkable Jacobson Collection. There were just 4,600 examples of this date produced and the 1872-CC saw extensive commercial usage. As a result, it is unique in Uncirculated (an NGC MS62 was recently discovered in England and offered in Heritage's 2020 FUN sale) and it is very rare in About Uncirculated.

    A PCGS VF35 1872-CC eagle has not been offered for sale at auction since the Harry Bass Collection, Part II, lot 1532 (which brought $5,290) was hammered in October 1999. The most recent record for a PCGS XF40 is Heritage's Chicago Signature (10/2018), lot 2146, at $10,800.

    This is one of the more affordable straight-graded 1872-CC eagles available to collectors with big tastes on a slightly limited budget. Wear is even and light, leaving most details in evidence. The deep orange-gold patina is original.
    From The Harvey B. Jacobson, Jr. Collection of Liberty Eagles. (Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 53M3, PCGS# 8664)
