Cert #8664 4829402-007
Coin Number 135
Here is the finest 1872-CC graded by either grading service, and the only example that has been certified as Mint State of this date and mint. 4,600 pieces were struck in 1872 at the Carson City Mint and about 80 to 90 exist today. There is considerable luster in the fields and the strike sharp and compelling with its delivery of the finer nuances of the design. Eye appeal is strong, with lovely greenish yellow gold and satiny luster throughout. This coin is a recent discovery from Europe where it had been in a collection for decades and may be the only mint state example in existence. A gorgeous coin!
