Among the more plentiful CC-mint twenties in an absolute sense, the 1875-CC is, like all issues in this mintmarked gold series, a conditionally rare find in any Mint State grade. Only 200-250 Uncs are believed extant (per Winter and Halperin, 2001), and the present example has the eye appeal of an appreciably higher grade. Both the vibrancy of luster and the small size of the grade defining abrasions are uncommon attributes at the MS-61 grade level. Frosty and sharply struck, with lovely color in a warm, even, orange-gold hue.
