David Akers (1975/88): The 1893-CC is the last Half Eagle from this popular mint. It is also one of the most common, ranking in overall rarity with the 1882-CC, 1890-CC and 1892-CC. It is considerably more rare than the 1891-CC. Although most known specimens are circulated (VF and EF are typical) the 1893-CC is also available in strictly uncirculated condition. However, gem quality mint state pieces are very scarce.
