David Akers (1975/88): The 1876-CC has the lowest mintage of any Carson City Mint Half Eagle. It is not the rarest, however, but is of approximately the same rarity as the 1971-CC, 1972-CC and 1877-CC and a little more rare than the 1874-CC. It is not as rare as the 1870-CC, 1873-CC, 1875-CC, or 1878-CC. Almost all known specimens are well circulated with VF being typical.
