1872-CC $5 Liberty. PCGS graded AU-50. Nice even toning on both sides. Good eye appeal. Medium orange-gold with some luster in the recessed areas, some brownish old-gold patina on the highlights, and top-to-bottom eye appeal that just won't end. A pleasing, in fact, a marvelous example of this great rarity, a coin that will attract wide attention.

Among the finest examples of the 1872-CC date currently known, and a numismatic force as such. As noted in our description of other pieces in the sale, the early half eagles of the Carson City Mint were used extensively in circulation, with the result that all are rare today and that at the About Uncirculated level they are formidable rarities. Pop 5; 5 in 53; 5 in 55; 1 in 58. (PCGS # 8326) .
Estimated Value $14,000 - 16,000.

Realized $15,295
