SCARCE PCGS AU55 1872-CC
The 1872-CC double eagle is scarce in properly graded AU55 and rare finer. With AU58 coins priced at close to $30,000 (for a nice PCGS example), a nice AU55 represents the best choice for many collectors.
This example is very frosty with nice light yellow-gold and orange hues on both sides. There are the expected small ticks seen in the fields but there are no large, obtrusive marks. The strike is typical for the issue with weakness at the centers.
Only three PCGS AU55 1872-CC double eagles have sold at auction since early 2012, and the last APR was a very strong $33,600 for a CAC approved piece offered as Stack’s Bowers 6/18: 222. Before this, examples sold for $18,800 in March 2017 and also in February 2016.
The recent hoards of CC double eagles which have entered the market have not impacted the 1872-CC in AU55 and higher grades.
This is an important coin for the advanced Carson City double eagle specialist.
