Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): All the early Carson City Mint Eagles are very rare and the 1876-CC is no exception. In terms of overall rarity, it is on a par with the 1872-CC, 1873-CC and 1875-CC and is only a little less rare than the 1878-CC. From the standpoint of condition rarity, it is near the top of the series ranking fourth according to average grade. As is the case with the other CC Eagles of this period, most 1876-CC Eagles are softly struck on the hair curls around Liberty's face.
