Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88)

The 1876-CC has the lowest mintage of any Carson City Mint Half Eagle. It is not the rarest, however, but is of approximately the same rarity as the 1871-CC, 1872-CC and 1877-CC and a little more rare than the 1874-CC. It is not as rare as the 1870-CC, 1873-CC, 1875-CC, or 1878-CC. Almost all known specimens are well circulated with VF being typical.
