1880-CC $5.00 PCGS AU58 CAC

Thus ultra-lustrous super-slider probably was never in circulation but it shows just a hint of friction on the high spots of the obverse; the reverse grades at least MS61 by itself. The light orange-gold obverse is clean and boldly detailed with just a few small marks in the fields; the reverse is exceptionally free of marks. The 1880-CC is a much scarcer date than the 1882-CC and it is very rare in Uncirculated with fewer than a dozen properly graded pieces known. If available, a PCGS MS61 with a CAC sticker would cost around double the price of this AU58. In my opinion, this coin is a great value and it would fit well into just about any high end collection of CC half eagles.
