1875-CC ANACS VF30 Liberty half eagle $5 gold, only 11,828 minted, VERY RARE! here is another very tough Carson City issue- only 11,828 were made and they were used heavily in commerce so very few survived above VF. we just upgraded this one in our set so grab it quick, Carson City pieces always go fast when we list them. the grade is right on, maybe a little conservative considering the detail on even uncirculated specimens can look weak. nice looking piece with no problems, was one of the centerpieces of our set. NGC has graded only 90 of these in all grades combined in the last 30 years and probably more than half of those were sent in more than once trying for the next grade up because of the great difference in value. PCGS has graded only 99 in the same period and keep in mind that many of those were broken out of their slabs and resubmitted for a better grade and profit, so the true number is probably much less than the number stated. there are probably 150 to 200 in existence, in all grades combined, in the entire world. now that's what I call rare. stack rarity like this up against 1916-D dimes or gem MS65 1909-S VDB cents or even 1893-S Morgan dollars and it becomes clear how underpriced the half eagle series really is. throw away the price guides and compare value for value in other series and then you'll see why we think this series is very much undervalued. coins like these do not trade often so the price guides have no real data on a timely basis and values lag the market, often by multiples of stated values in the price guides. we paid a hefty premium for this one when purchased because it is what it is, slab and professional opinion or not, and we were glad we didn't pass on the opportunity to add it to our collection. when is the next time you will get a shot at a really nice near-XF at this kind of price? please see the photographs, they are of the exact coin that the buyer will receive.
