1872-CC $5 Liberty. NGC graded AU-50. In NGC holder 1774704-001. Honey colored gold. Only 16,980 minted. A wonderful About Uncirculated example by any measure, the areas of remaining luster are contained around and within the main devices, with little luster flowing out into the more exposed open areas where circulation wear first shows. Light orange and other golden colors blossom on both sides. The strike, like the luster, is confident if not exactly bold, with some moderate areas of diminishment on the neck feathers only.

Similar to many other high quality pieces in the present sale, this rare CC-mint coin will likely off the market for many years after it sells. Quality and aesthetic appeal come together and join rarity as a consideration among specialist bidders, yielding yet another numismatic milestone. Pop 3; 16 finer; 5 in 53; 7 in 55; 4 in 58. (PCGS # 8326) .
Estimated Value $13,000 - 15,000.
