    1871-CC Half Eagle, VF30
    Pleasing Mid-Grade Example

    1871-CC $5 VF30 NGC. Variety 1-A. The 1871-CC half eagle, with only 20,770 examples struck, is a scarce issue from the early years of the Carson City Mint. This lightly circulated, orange-gold example actually shows quite a bit of remaining luster, though Liberty's hair and forehead display wear proportionate to the grade. The surfaces are lightly abraded, as can be expected at this grade level, the most notable flaw being a small cluster of marks on Liberty's jaw. Census: 6 in 30, 64 finer (6/14).
