1882-CC $5.00 NGC AU55

The 1882-C is the most available Carson City half eagle made prior to 1890 and this makes it a great type coin for the collector seeking an affordable but interesting date. This example is choice and original with plenty of luster seen below nice natural russet-gold color. As is the case with original examples of this date, this piece has a slightly grainy texture which I find very appealing. Some dirt can be seen on the reverse and this attests to this coin's originality.
