1878-CC Liberty Head Gold Eagle AU53

The 1878-CC Liberty Head in any grade is an Absolute Rarity as just 3,244 were struck. While the Carson City Mint is strongly associated with silver, this is one of the few gold issues struck in Nevada. The 1878 issue ranks at the third rarest by mintage alone, but only about 75 are known to have survived to this day. Between PCGS and NGC, only 20 examples have been graded in About Uncirculated 53 with just 2 in Mint State condition. In fact, PCGS has not certified a single example in Mint State condition. With such a low mintage and so few in this grade and finer, this 1878-CC Liberty Head Gold Eagle is not only an Absolute and Condition Rarity, but also among the finest known of the issue.
