Description 1875-CC $20 AU50 NGC. CAC. Variety 9-D. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. A newly discovered variety for this issue, exhibiting an 1875 obverse paired with the Wide CC reverse of 1876. This reverse is elusive on the 1876-CC issue, and is decidedly rare on the 1875-CC. As a date, this issue is one of the more plentiful from this mint in terms of overall rarity, and is often chosen by type collectors seeking a single representative from the Carson City facility. This example displays luminous apricot-gold luster in the recesses, highlighting original green-gold patina elsewhere. High-point friction is minimal, as are consequential abrasions. 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 @ $75.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4112.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
