Description 1874-CC $5 AU53 NGC. CAC. Variety 2-C. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This olive-gold example displays attractive orange overtones and original, virtually unabraded surfaces -- traits seldom seen for this Carson City issue in any condition. Most representatives are found heavily marked and without the eye appeal shown by this exceptional coin. Smooth wear accompanies the soft, underlying mint luster and the attractive patina. Just two or three Uncirculated pieces are known, and high-quality About Uncirculated examples with natural surfaces such as this coin are rare. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $30.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $8812.50.
