1870-CC 50C VF35 Certification #60158228, PCGS #6328
1870 was the first year in which the Carson City Mint went into production of U.S. coins. In it's first year, mintages of every denomination were very low, creating instant rarities across the board. Though the Half Dollar had the largest mintage of the group, it remains a great rarity today. For anyone collecting this series, the 1870-CC Half Dollar is one of the toughest of all the dates. From About Good to Extremely Fine, the 1870-CC Half Dollar is available -- for a price. In AU and better grades, this is an extreme rarity. Only a tiny handful of Mint State 1870-CC Half Dollars exist, and no Gem or better example has been seen.
