David Akers (1975/88): The 1892-CC is a scarce but not rare coin. It is a little more rare than the lower mintage 1893-CC in terms of population rarity and it is considerably more rare than the 1893-CC in Unc. The 1892-CC is usually seen in EF or AU condition although there are numerous VF examples around as well. Average uncirculated (MS-60) specimens are scarce but can be located without a great deal of difficulty. Choice quality uncs are very scarce and true gems are rare. This is another date that was considered quite rare in Unc. until the 1960's when many turned up in Europe.
