The 1884-CC half eagle is comparable in rarity to the 1883-CC and much harder to locate in all grades than the 1880-CC and 1882-CC. Only 16,402 were struck and most of the surviving examples grade below AU50. Properly graded AU55 examples are very scarce, especially with natural color and choice surfaces.

This lustrous, original example shows pleasing green-gold and russet colors with just a slight amount of even wear seen on both sides. The strike is sharp with all details full and the surfaces are very clean for the date and grade. The eye appeal is excellent for this issue.

The last auction record for the 1884-CC half eagle in NGC AU55 is for this exact coin which sold for $6,169 as Heritage 4/14: 6501. Another NGC AU55 with CAC approval brought $7,638 as Heritage 1/13: 7244.

This date is essentially unavailable in Uncirculated and the present coin is comparable to many of the pieces I have seen graded AU58. Do not be fooled by the inflated NGC population of this coin; it is really tough in this grade!

CAC has approved five in AU55 with 10 finer.
