Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1892-CC is one of the most common Carson City Half Eagles and is approximately equal in overall rarity to the 1882-CC, 1890-CC and 1893-CC. It is decidedly more rare than the relatively common 1891-CC. Although uncirculated examples are occasionally available, VF or EF specimens are the most often encountered. Choice or gem quality pieces are rare and are seen less often than comparable quality coins dated 1890-CC or 1893-CC.
