    Mint State 1879-CC Liberty Five
    None Certified Finer at NGC

    1879-CC $5 MS61 NGC. CAC. Variety 2-A. The 1879-CC Liberty half eagle is one of the more available dates of the 1870s, from a mintage of 17,281 pieces. Doug Winter estimates a surviving population of 200-250 pieces in all grades, but Mint State examples are very rare. The present coin should qualify for Condition Census, as NGC has certified only five coins in MS61 condition, with none finer, while PCGS has graded two examples in MS61, with a single specimen finer at MS62 (6/11). The Variety 2-A is identified by a die line through the bottom serif of E in LIBERTY.
    The coin offered here is an attractive Mint State specimen with well-detailed design elements and frosty mint luster. The surfaces are a pleasing yellow-gold color, with hints of green. Only minor, grade-consistent contact marks are evident on both sides. This lot represents an important opportunity for the Carson City specialist.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25X8, PCGS# 8349)
