    1876-CC Five Dollar, AU53
    Conditional Rarity From Carson City

    1876-CC $5 AU53 NGC. Variety 1-A. Gold coinage at Carson City in 1876 was almost entirely focused on the double eagle denomination, of which more than 138,000 coins were struck. The eagle and half eagle suffered low, four-figure mintages as a result, the latter issue being produced to the extent of just 6,887 pieces. During the 1870s, half eagles were actively circulated in the Nevada territory, with virtually no local numismatic interest to preserve high-grade examples. Today, the 1876-CC is nearly unknown in Mint State. NGC reports a coin in MS61, and the remarkable Clapp-Eliasberg-Battle Born Collection specimen is graded MS66 PCGS. Aside from those two pieces, collectors have only AU coins from which to choose a high-grade example.

    This AU53 piece displays sharp detail and lightly marked honey-gold surfaces. Hints of luster remain in the fields, and wear is light. Eye appeal is excellent for the grade. Census: 8 in 53, 15 finer (11/19).
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# B5SN, PCGS# 8340)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
