Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1872-CC is of comparable overall rarity to the 1871-CC although, in my opinion, it is a little more rare than the 1971-CC in full EF or better. I have not heard of one even close to uncirculated. Most known specimens are well worn with Fine and VF being typical.
