Lot Description
1878-CC $1 MS67 NGC. The demand for Carson City dollars is far greater than that for any other mint. The 1878-CC is the first year of issue, adding even more pressure for high grade examples of this date. The mintage was 2.2 million pieces, and while the 1878-CC is relatively common in lower Uncirculated grades, those graded MS65 and finer, in particular, are extremely elusive. This is an absolutely splendid Superb Gem. The surfaces are nearly perfect in terms of technical preservation, and the striking details are fully detailed in all areas. Thick mint frost rolls around each side of this magnificent coin, which is brilliant throughout. Census: 9 in 67, 0 finer (5/09). From The Sonoma Collection.
