Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88)

Most 1875-CC Half Eagles are in lower circulated grades from VG to VF. I have seen only one piece that graded full AU, and none in strictly uncirculated condition. As a date, the 1875-CC is comparable to the 1873-CC and more rare than the 1871-CC, 1872-CC, 1874-CC, 1876-CC and 1877-CC. All specimens I have seen were rather weakly struck, particularly on the obverse.
