My 1875-CC Twenty Cent Newp
I just bought the following coin this morning. The CAC pop is only 9, out of 142 in this grade by PCGS and NGC. Yes, I know it's been dipped at some point, but apparently gently enough to still merit the CAC, as the luster is "All There". I also recognize that the majority of knowledgeable collectors prefer their 19th Century silver coins to have "originality", as exhibited by some toning. Regardless, there's a large but silent group that prefers coins with this type of eye appeal, and I see that in auction results as coins get bid up. However, I bought this one from a dealer, and not via auction.
Will @ricko apply his coveted "BW" seal?
