    1872-CC Dollar, AU Definition
    Tiny 3,150-Coin Mintage

    1872-CC $1 -- Reverse Rim Damage -- NGC Details. AU. OC-1, High R.3. The four late-date Carson City issues are among the most desirable in the series thanks to their CC mintmark and remarkably low mintages. The 1872-CC (3,150 coins minted) is more collectible than the rarer 1871-CC and 1873-CC, though it is by no means a common date. Dick Osburn and Brian Cushing estimate that only 250 pieces are extant. The coin boasts AU definition, though scratches along the lower reverse rim prevent a numerical grade. Each side is bright and untoned with myriad marks.
    From the Dr. Bruce Mesara Collection.
