The 1873-CC is one of the rarest eagles struck at the Carson City mint with only 60-70 known from an original mintage of just 4,543. This date is notorious for poor eye appeal and when available, survivors tend to be in the VF-EF range with a total lack of originality and poor eye appeal.

This is the most attractive collector grade 1873-CC eagle which I’ve handled in some time, and I believe it is at least five points undergraded as it shows enough detail (and even some luster!) to readily be reholdered someday as a VF35. It is uncleaned and original with pleasing natural russet hues and no marks of note save for some old chatter below the eagle’s right wing. The eye appeal is exceptional for the date and grade.

An overgraded (in my opinion) NGC VF30 sold for $14,100 as Heritage 4/14: 6627 while a much nicer coin in the same grade realized $21,150 as Heritage 2/14: 4198. Neither was approved by CAC.

Unless you have a big budget and are waiting for an AU example of the 1873-CC, I feel that this choice, attractive piece will fit comfortably in nearly any set of CC eagles.

CAC has approved two in this grade with six finer.
