Lot Description
1872-CC $1 AU55 NGC. While not as scarce as the mintage of 3,150 suggests, the 1872-CC is, nevertheless, a difficult coin to locate especially in high grades. Bowers states that "In Mint State the 1872-CC is very rare and seems to be nearly (but not quite) on a par with the 1871-CC, although in lower grades the 1871-CC is measurably rarer." In all grades, somewhere between 210 and 250 coins are believed extant today, with most in major dollar collections. This piece is a bit softly struck over the highpoints. The surfaces are bright and darker toning is seen around the obverse periphery. Numerous small abrasions are peppered over each side with a couple of larger ones in the right obverse field. From The Lewis (Tahoe) Collection.
