    Gem Mint State 1890-CC Half Eagle
    Old West Type Coin
    Extraordinaire

    1890-CC $5 MS65 NGC. With a decent mintage by Carson City gold standards (53,800 pieces) and a relatively sizable Mint State population, the 1890-CC half eagle is a favorite of Old West type collectors. This Gem representative is a gorgeous showcase of the Carson City Mint's capabilities in its last four years of operation. Apricot-laced gold luster has a swirling, slightly frosted quality. Small details such as the strands of Liberty's hair and the eagle's neck feathers are brought up well, if not completely. Just a few tiny marks, including a couple of reed marks below the eagle's left (facing) wing, preclude an even finer designation. Census: 6 in 65, 0 finer (6/12).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25Y3, PCGS# 8376)
