Stack's Bowers Auction May 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction May-2019 1879-CC Liberty Head Half Eagle. AU-50 (PCGS). Lustrous About Uncirculated quality with all but a few isolated design elements sharply to fully defined. Attractive in all regards, both sides exhibit lovely medium gold patina. Despite its proximity to the Comstock Lode (which source yielded gold as well as silver), bullion deposits for gold coinage remained low in 1879, and the facility delivered a mere 17,281 half eagles that year. Only a few hundred coins are extant, most of which are circulated, and many of which are confined to VF grades. This is a superior example for both the issue and assigned grade that will appeal to advanced Carson City Mint gold enthusiasts. Provenance: From the Drummer Collection. PCGS# 8349. NGC ID: 25X8.
