Dave Crothers Grand Gold Coins
Ron Guth: Approximately four 1884-CC Dollars have been called Branch Mint Proofs in the past (a notable example is the Jack Lee - Heritage 1/2009:5085 at $184,000). PCGS believes the so-called Branch Mint Proof 1884-CC Dollars are all DMPLs. All are struck from late state dies that show cracks and rust. While these features are sometimes found on Proof coins from the Philadelphia Mint, they do not help the case for the 1884-CC Dollars.
