1879-CC. Capped Die. PCGS graded MS-62 Prooflike. CAC Approved. A nice untoned coin. VAM-3. Top 100 Variety. The Capped Die 1879-CC was produced by one die, VAM-3. It is good to be reminded every so often that the so-called "Capped Die" is actually a Medium Over Small Mintmark, the results of which went awry and ended up looking a jumble. Well struck, the surfaces have bright, frosted mint luster and a few scattered bagmarks consistent with this grade (PCGS # 7089) .
Estimated Value $3,500 - 4,000.

Realized $5,060
