Each week, we present a special coin from our current iAuctions selection. Stack’s Bowers is proud to be able to offer such a wide range of American numismatic material in each sale. This week we highlight an NGC-certified 1883-CC Liberty Head eagle, graded AU-55. This rich orange gold toned coin features a good strike, and only mild abrasions from a short stay in circulation. The 1883-CC is a scarce issue in any grade, as only 12,000 pieces were struck, and many entered circulation and stayed there; a lucky few were withdrawn and saved by astute numismatists, and others, by sheer chance.
