Description

1871-CC Twenty, XF40
Scarce Early Carson City Issue

1871-CC $20 XF40 PCGS. As the second rarest Carson City double eagle, the 1871-CC is always in demand by collectors of this popular series. Only 17,387 pieces were produced, and it is reliably estimated that fewer than 150 coins survive in all grades. Carson City gold is a highly popular collecting specialty; examples are always in demand.
The present smooth yellow-gold example represents a median grade for the issue. Traces of luster are still visible in protected areas around the devices, and the surfaces are entirely free of consequential marks.
Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2004), lot 6357; Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 7/2009), lot 2025.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 26AB, PCGS# 8961)
