    1878-CC Half Eagle, AU50
    Low Mintage and Survival Rate

    1878-CC $5 AU50 NGC. Variety 1-A. A single set of dies was used in the production of 9,054 half eagles at the Carson City Mint in 1878. Many of those coins entered into circulation out West, contributing to the issue's high attrition rate and leaving collectors with probably fewer than 100 representatives to potentially add to their collections.

    This is a problem-free About Uncirculated 1878-CC five dollar with orange-gold color and a trace of field reflectivity. Every element of the design remains bold considering time spent in the channels of commerce. There are a handful of rim marks and a graze on Liberty's neck, but generally speaking eye appeal is impressive. Census: 6 in 50, 19 finer (11/19).
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25X5, PCGS# 8346)

    Weight: 8.36 grams
