David Akers (1975/88): The 1877-CC is very rare in all grades. I have not even heard of an uncirculated specimen nor has there ever been an auction record for one, at least not in the 337 sales included in my auction survey. As a date, the 1877-CC is comparable in rarity to the 1871-CC, 1872-CC and 1876-CC and a little less rare than the 1873-CC and 1875-CC. It is marginally more rare than the 1874-CC.
