Stack's Bowers Auction The August 2013 Chicago ANA World's Fair of Money Jul-2013 1879-CC Liberty Half Eagle. AU-55 (PCGS). The deep honey-gold surfaces of this attractive half eagle are softly lustrous and present warm orange iridescence at every turn. Nicely struck with the design high points weakened only by circulation. From a modest mintage for the date of just 17,281 pieces, the vast majority of which saw heavy commercial duty in the Carson City region. The typical condition for an 1879-CC half eagle is just VF to EF with occasional forays into AU territory -- PCGS has registered just four grading events in the Mint State category for the date, with the finest of those MS-62. A pleasing example of a scarce and elusive Carson City Mint half eagle. PCGS# 8349.
