1880-CC $5.00 NGC MS61

1880-CC $5.00 NGC MS61
Mintage: 51,017

While common in lower grades and even available, from time to time, in AU55 to AU58, the 1880-CC half eagle is rare in Uncirculated with no more than eight to ten examples known. There is a single PCGS MS63 (that sold for $34,500 in Heritage’s 12/04 auction and would probably bring considerably more today) and a PCGS MS62 (ex Old West and Bass which last sold for $29,900 in August 2006). After this, I am aware of three of four that grade MS61 and the present example is probably the freshest and most unquestionably "new" of these. It is very vibrant and frosty with attractive light golden-yellow color. The strike is as sharp as on any 1880-CC that I’ve seen and there is just a touch of friction in the obverse fields.

Dollar Coin Reverse

28 years of US Dollar Coins, reverse view.

Back in 1979, we got the Susan B. Anthony Dollar Coin.
Another legacy of the Carter Administration, a dollar that looks and feels like a quarter. Thanks Jimmy…

In 2000, the Sacagawea Dollar Coin was released. This intelligent redesign kept the same size and weight (making it vending machine compatible with the Susie B.), but was made with a distinctive Golden color and removed the edge milling (making it feel different than a Quarter).

Now we have the first in the Presidential Series of US Dollar Coins, featuring the first US President, George Washington.

Putting the Statue of Liberty on the obverse of the President series bucks the tradition of putting Eagles on the Reverse.

Presidential Dollar Collector's Folder
The U.S. Mint has started issuing handsome new silver dollars featuring images of the presidents in the order that they served?and this time they’re taking a fresh, contemporary approach! Beginning this year with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison, each coin will have large dramatic artwork (bigger than ever before) and display the Statue of Liberty on the reverse. They’ll also feature innovative edge lettering and a process to make the coins stay shinier longer. This 4-part folder is a handsome, practical way to collect those coins as they’re issued and keep them in perfect condition over the years. Done in the same specs as the very successful 50 State Quarters Collector’s Folder (more than 100,000 copies sold), The Presidential Dollar Collector’s Folder offers informative background material on the mint and the presidential coin program, as well as selected highlights of each president’s term in office.
