Description & Analysis

The 1892-CC is the scarcest Carson City half eagle from the 1890s. It is also a significant condition rarity. Even though 50-75 pieces are believed known today in the various Uncirculated grades, there are only four coins that have been certified in MS64 or finer condition (all NGC).
