    Description

    1871-CC Five Dollar, VF20
    Nice Eye Appeal for the Grade

    1871-CC $5 VF20 PCGS. Variety 1-A. Few survivors remain from an original mintage of 20,770 pieces, making this Carson City date a desirable acquisition in any condition. This coin is a Variety 1-A example, with the mintmark spaced widely apart. Tawny orange-gold surfaces display a deeper olive-green near the devices. The attractive, well-detailed surfaces are mellow from wear, so most abrasions are smoothed-over or less noticeable than when the coin was new. Doug Winter estimates no more than 140 to 150 examples remain in any condition. Housed in an previous-generation, green-label holder. Population: 7 in 20, 67 finer (2/14).
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P3)

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

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
