Original $4800 Railroad Tracks Reverse, Original, Cumberland County Collection. The popular "railroad tracks" variety is marked by a series of parallel die lines running across (STA)TES on the reverse. The exact cause of the damage is unknown, which likely increases the collector fascination with this plainly visible die defect. Silver and gray patina marks the surfaces of this VF piece, along with a few obverse hints of russet. The coin is slightly glossy from an old clean, but only to a degree considered acceptable by PCGS. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.5 (2011-2013) holder. The label captures the variety attribution as "Large Arrows WB-102 'Railroad Tracks' Rev" - but even without the attribution this coin remains an 1874-CC, and highly desirable in its own right.
