1884-CC $5 Liberty. PCGS graded AU-58. Well struck with light toning. Only 16,402 minted. There is a faint raised die line that is diagnostic on the '84-CC half eagles, as though the die maker left this obverse unfinished. A worthwhile specimen by any standard, the ample luster is not in the least timid or yielding as on more worn specimens, while pale golden hues blossom on both sides. The strike, like the luster, is confident, indeed, as bold as ever seen on virtually any CC date in the series. Too-clever tactics and bidding ruses just won't cut it here. Frontal attack with firm determination will be the stuff it takes to wrest this attractive half eagle away from the other contenders. Pop 10; 1 in 61, 1 in 62 (PCGS # 8365) .
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,000.

Realized $8,913
