The upcoming Carson City Coinage U.S. Coins Monthly Online Auction by Heritage Auctions showcases Carson City coinage exclusively. Operating from 1870-1893, the Carson City Mint produced some rare coins in the U.S., ranging from dimes to double eagles. The auction features a canceled die, one of numerous reverse dies that the Carson City Mint used to strike half dollars in the 1870s. After its retirement from coinage in Carson City, the die was canceled with an ‘X’ on its face and buried on the Carson City Mint grounds. Development excavations on what was the Mint grounds in the 1870s was done in 1999, unearthing a cache of buried, canceled dies.
Leading the auction is a one-dollar 1889-CC MS61 by PCGS coin. Another highlight is an 1879-CC Capped Die dollar with die chips around the mintmark. Additional lots include an 1877-CC Double Eagle, $20 AU55. Since very few 1877-CC Mint State coins are ever seen, these are considered much scarcer than the 1875-CC and 1876-CC.
