1878-CC Trade Dollar. MS-63 (PCGS). CMQ.A highly significant offering for the specialist, and a beautiful example of a legendary CC-Mint rarity. Intensely lustrous surfaces exhibit subtle cartwheel visual effects to a satiny finish, the reverse also with faint traces of semi-prooflike reflectivity in the field. Wisps of delicate champagne-apricot iridescence decorate the borders and yield to silver-white brilliance elsewhere. Smartly impressed and universally sharp, freedom from even trivial distractions further enhances this coins awesome appeal.<p>The final Carson City Mint contribution to the trade dollar series, the 1878-CC is also the rarest issue of this type in Mint State. (Its only real rivals for this distinction are varieties such as the 1875-S/CC and 1876-CC Doubled Die Reverse, which are not separate issues.) Actually, the 1878-CC is the rarest circulation strike trade dollar issue in terms of total number of coins believed extant in all grades. The mintage is limited to a scant 97,000 coins, and many of those pieces seem to have been included among the 44,148 trade dollars destroyed in the Mint on July 19, 1878. In his outstanding reference <em>The Confident Carson City Coin Collector</em> (2020), CC-Mint expert Rusty Goe accounts for only 250 to 325 survivors in all grades, of which just 25 to 32 are Mint State. The author has a keen understanding of how inflated third party certification data has obscured the true rarity of this issue in grades such as MS-63 and, as such, masks the extreme difficulty that collectors will typically experience obtaining a coin such as that offered here. Goe states:<p><em>In a January 2009 Heritage auction catalog description for a specimen in an NGC MS-63 holder it was stated that, "[David] Bowers (1993) notes that there are probably around 15 to 25 survivors at the MS63 grade level, and that estimate is consistent with current certified population data." As it turned out the "population data" referred to (i.e., the submission events reported by PCGS and NGC) were misleading, just like (as mentioned earlier) they are today.the actual supply of coins in this group consists of only five to seven pieces, which includes the one in a PCGS holder with a + (Plus) sign. Even the chances of the supply reaching the higher end of that estimate are slim. Is it any wonder why collectors looking for MS-63 specimens can never find them?</em><p>If you are one of the advanced trade dollar and/or CC-Mint specialists who has been patiently waiting for the opportunity to add a Choice Mint State example of this famous trade dollar rarity to your cabinet, the search can end here. But it will not be without a fight, for we anticipate strong competition between astute numismatists who recognize the fleeting nature of this offering.PCGS# 7047. NGC ID: 253F.PCGS Population: 7; 11 finer (MS-66 finest).From the Barbaro Acres Collection.
