The Survival Estimate represents an average of one or more experts' opinions as to how many examples survive of a particular coin in three categories: 1) all grades, 2) 60 or better, and 3) 65 or better. These estimates are based on a variety of sources, including population reports, auction appearances, and personal knowledge. Survival estimates include coins that are raw, certified by PCGS, and certified by other grading services.
Numismatic Rarity converts the Survival Estimate for a particular coin into a number from 1 to 10 (with decimal increments) based on the PCGS Rarity Scale. The higher the number, the more rare the coin.
Relative Rarity By Type
Relative Rarity By Type ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Type. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
Relative Rarity By Series
Relative Rarity By Series ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Series. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
David Akers (1975/88):
The 1882-CC is a moderately scarce date in all grades and ranks right in the middle of the Carson City Mint Double Eagles (9th out of 19) in terms of overall rarity. It is similar in overall rarity to the 1877-CC, 1889-CC and 1892-CC (a little more rare perhaps) and is decidedly more rare than any of the other CC-Mint issues that follow except the 1885-CC and 1891-CC. Locating an 1882-CC is not a terribly difficult task if one is willing to accept a coin that is less than Unc. In average uncirculated condition (MS-60), the 1882-CC is very scarce and in choice Unc. the date is rare. A few gems exist but they are very rare.
