Description & Analysis

Trade dollars had not been coined at the Carson City Mint since April of 1876 when production finally resumed in June of this year. Additional deliveries occurred in July, August and December. Though the depositors of silver for this purpose asserted that the coins were intended solely for export to the Far East, many instead found their way into domestic circulation. As a demonetized nuisance, trade dollars could be refused in commerce, but many business owners found that such refusals resulted in a loss of business.

The 1877-CC trade dollar is scarce in most circulated grades and rare at the Mint State level. Gems are all but unknown, and even choice examples are very scarce and highly sought.

There are no notable varieties for this issue. Two mintmark sizes are known: Medium CC and Tall CC. Only specialists seek these varieties, so little premium is attached.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
