Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88)

In overall rarity, the 1874-CC is possibly the most common of the very rare Carson City Mint issues in the 1870-1878 period. (At least it had more auction appearances in my 337 catalogue survey and I have personally seen more of this date than of any of the others.) Most known specimens of the 1874-CC are well circulated and VF examples are typical. A few AU coins are known but only one 1874-CC catalogued as uncirculated has ever been offered at public auction. That coin was in the Robison Sale (Stack's 2/79) and it brought $19,000.
