Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1890-CC is scarce, but not rare, in all grades. As a date, the 1890-CC is a bit more scarce than the 1882-CC but it is easier to locate in strictly uncirculated condition than the 1882-CC. It is comparable overall to the 1892-CC and 1893-CC and much more rare than the 1891-CC. Although many known specimens are only VF or EF, AU and even strictly uncirculated specimens can be obtained. However, gem quality mint state pieces are rather rare.
