Allen Rowe Northern Nevada Coin
The 1871-CC Dime is one of the stars of the Carson City coins, primarily because of its inherent rarity and the paucity of Mint State examples. After some confusion about crossovers, resubmissions, etc. a clear picture has emerged of the members of the Mint State "club" and it shows that there are, at best, five Uncirculated 1871-CC Dimes. The best is the NGC MS65 from the Eugene Gardner Collection that sold recently for a record price of $270,250. Check out the Condition Census above for the most accurate listing ever presented for this date.
