Lot Description
1872-CC $1 AU53 NGC. The 1872-CC dollar has a low mintage of 3,150 pieces. Of course, only a fraction of that mintage exists in the marketplace today. Rusty Goe 2003) estimates between 200 and 300 examples are extant in all grades, most of which are less than XF. Most of the original luster is intact on this gold-tinged specimen, which shows the light wear and moderate contact marks expected of a short spate in circulation. The strike is somewhat soft on the upper obverse, leaving some peripheral stars and some of the details of Liberty's face less than full. Census: 6 in 53, 26 finer (10/10).
