Lot 1833

1873-CC. PCGS graded AU-50. Only 22,410 minted of which merely 405 examples are estimated to have survived. Untoned. Supporting luster remains on this scarce CC-mint release with only lightly marked surfaces for the grade. We note some marks on Libertys chin and one in the field by the third star, but no other problems worth describing. With so few struck, it follows that this is a very rare date in higher grades given the extensive use of gold (and silver) coins in the West in the second half of the 19th century; especially above Extremely Fine, one rarely encounters an 1873-CC. Hence a double eagle specialist will soon find this date to be quite a challenge. Here is a very nice one indeed, and we expect to see spirited bidding on this one (PCGS # 8968) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.

Realized $13,200
