    Description

    1871-CC Liberty Five, Vibrant AU50
    Significant CC-Mint Condition Rarity

    1871-CC $5 AU50 NGC. Variety 1-A. Few 1871-CC half eagles survived the rigors of circulation in the West. The five-dollar gold piece was a preferred denomination in everyday commerce, where most coins circulated until heavily worn, lost, or melted. This About Uncirculated example was well-preserved despite its limited circulation. Most of the mint luster remains, and bagmarks are not an issue. Moderate wear flat spots some of the high points and small ticks visit the frosty surfaces. Appealing orange-gold accents embolden the bright, yellow-gold coloration. Scarce this nice. Census: 4 in 50, 22 finer (7/16).
    From The Twelve Oaks Collection.(Registry values: P3)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25WD, PCGS# 8323)

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
