Stack's Bowers Auction October 2018 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Oct-2018 1879-CC Liberty Head Half Eagle. EF-45 (NGC). A patina of peach and honey coloration paints each side of this lovely piece. The surfaces are evenly worn and overall smooth, free from any significant blemishes. Subtle traces of luster immediately around the devices contribute to the pleasing eye appeal. 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 only 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. PCGS# 8349. NGC ID: 25X8. Click here for certification details from NGC.
