This is a very desirable example of this incredibly scarce-date “CC” gold eagle. There are probably no more than about 70 1879-CC eagles, in all grades, on the planet. There is only one Mint State specimens (graded MS-62 by NGC). Any example in a grade above Very Fine is an extreme rarity.

The piece offered here displays lovely golden-bronze-orange color. Much luster remains. The raised devices on both sides are sharply defined. Contact marks (small hits, small indentations, and small scratches) are visible on both sides, and are in no way detractive, and are absolutely commensurate with the AU-53 point rating. NGC added the + (Plus) sign to emphasize this coin’s exceptional eye appeal for its grade.

This is one of the four rarest dates in the “CC” gold eagle series (1870-CC, 1872-CC, and 1873-CC, the others). As such it is always in demand, and at the same time seldom offered.
