1892-CC $5.00 PCGS MS61 CAC

Lustrous and original with nice rose color that deepens at the borders. This piece has the body of an MS62 but it has some clusters of abrasions in the obverse fields that keep it at an accurate MS61. The 1892-CC half eagle is many times scarcer than the 1891-CC but it doesn't sell for a premium that reflects this rarity disparity. CAC has approved six in this grade with seven finer.
