1879-CC Half Eagle NGC AU53 CAC. A slightly circulated example of this popular Carson City half eagle. A total of 17,281 half eagles were produced at the Mint in Nevada during the year. Of these, approximately 225 to 275 coins are thought to be existent in all grades, with the majority of the pieces showing wear from circulation. Only a handful of pieces can be considered to be uncirculated, and are virtually unobtainable.

Mintages of gold coins dropped after the amount of gold ore deposited at the Carson City mint suddenly decreased. With no gold to put into federal gold coins, mintages remained low, although gold coins were still widely need in commerce. As a result, the gold that was deposited at the Mint was usually minted in the smallest gold denomination made there, the half eagle.

The present piece is one of those half eagles. Slightly circulated in the Carson City area, the present piece is totally original. Stickered by CAC for exceptional quality, this coin is one of the finer coins remaining from the original mintage. Luster still shows in the protected area’s, and the majority of the details are still strongly visible. This is the direct result of a very strong strike, and uncommon as such. A very nice example of this scarce gold coin from the popular Carson City Mint.
