1890-CC Twenty Dollar, Bright MS63
Among the Few Finest Survivors
1890-CC $20 MS63 NGC. Variety 1-A. The Sherman Silver Purchase Act of 1890 and increased gold deposits at Carson City, as the Comstock Lode shed much of its last remaining resources, made the 1890 gold coinage from Carson City the fourth-highest in the facility's history, and third-highest when one includes the silver coinage.

The 1890-CC double eagle was struck to the extent of 91,209 pieces, plentiful for Carson City but meager in comparison to the vast outputs of the era in San Francisco and Philadelphia. Perhaps 300 examples of the 1890-CC twenty survive today in Mint State. The present MS63 NGC coin is the sole finest at that service, although PCGS has seen five similarly graded submissions (1/13). Deep, even reddish patina covers each side of this piece, which displays bright, semiprooflike fields with a dab of lilac intermingled. Plentiful luster radiates throughout each side. The reverse die shows evidence of heavy lapping, as seen by the missing tailfeathers on the right side of the eagle. Light field chatter appears, along with one larger planchet flake below star 5. Among the finest survivors, both technically and aesthetically, of this historic issue.
From The Fenn Family Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26BY, PCGS# 9014)
