Description & Analysis

Compared to the Carson City Mint's half dollar output in 1874 of 59,000 pieces, 1875-CC half dollar production skyrocketed to 1,008,000 coins. In fact, more half dollars were manufactured in Carson City in 1875 than that mint had produced in the five preceding years combined.

Though not a major rarity in the Carson City series, the 1875-CC is much scarcer than the date's mintage would suggest. Indeed, mid- and high-grade Mint State examples are quite elusive, as can be gleaned from certified population figures, fewer than 50 specimens have been graded MS64 or better.
