1892-CC Liberty Half Eagle, NGC AU50, CAC, P.Q. Scarce date Carson City Half Eagle, in a grade that is becoming increasingly more difficult to find. These wild west gold coins are sought after not only by collectors but investors too! This specimen displays a green sticker from CAC.

From the second to last year of production at the Carson City Mint comes this fully original, and scarce as such, five dollar gold piece. Much scarcer than the mintage of 82,968 pieces would suggest, many have heavily circulated and come with problems like cleaning or damaged surfaces. Finding a fully, lightly circulated examples has become increasingly difficult, and we are happy to be able to offer such a piece.

While lightly circulated, some traces of luster is still visible in the protected fields, making it a pleasing and premium quality example of this scarce gold coin from the popular Nevada Mint. When the Mint, located in the capital of the silver state closed during the spring of the following year, it had been producing coins since 1870. Except for a small halt in the production during the mid 1880s, many denominations were produced, and virtually all of these are now considered to be scarce coins, with many rarities.

With the above said, Carson City gold coins are usually regarded as very expensive, and are often avoided by many collectors who will prefer the more available Morgan silver dollars that made this Mint popular. While some of the earlier and low mintage issues are certainly prime rarities, the present coin is a good exception to that rule.

With a mintage that is a fraction of many of the Morgan silver dollar issues, we have it priced under $1,000, making it only marginally more expensive than one of the common coins struck at the Philadelphia or San Francisco Mints. With its lightly circulated surfaces that display pleasing gold-green coloration, the overall eye-appeal is excellent.

No major marks are noted on either side, and additionally, this coin has been stickered by CAC. A perfect, lightly circulated representative of a scarce gold coin struck during the last years of the Carson City Mint.

Happy Collecting,
