Garden City, NY, USALive Auction
Description: 10c 1872-CC ANACS Fine-12 Details, Bent-Damaged. Mounted in a Cache holder, this russet and subtly iridescent specimen offers particularly bold obverse definition. The planchet is a bit wavy, and closer examination beneath the toning does reveal the presence of a number of old scratches. The rarity of this date is well recognized, and the budget-minded collector would be well advised to take advantage of this opportunity, as most of the known examples (estimates of the total extant generally fall between a mere 80 and 150 pieces) are well above the price range of this piece. Only 35,480 pieces were coined. Est. $625.
