Glowing MS61 1879-CC Half Eagle
1879-CC $5 MS61 NGC. Rusty Goe names the 1879-CC the most
accessible half eagle from the first decade of the denomination's
production in Carson City. This piece is certainly among the finest
known, as neither NGC nor PCGS has certified a single coin finer
(2/09). Glowing luster proceeds from both sides, and the bold
strike and relatively abrasion-free surfaces are a definite plus.
The average certified survivor only grades VF35 or a bit better.
Clearly at the top of the Condition Census for the issue. Census: 3
in 61, 0 finer (2/09).
