Description

Choice AU 1873-CC Double Eagle

1873-CC $20 AU55 PCGS. Variety 1-A. Two obverse dies were used to coin this scarce Carson City Closed 3 issue. Variety 2-A, which is even scarcer, has a misplaced date in the dentils beneath the 73. Variety 1-A is identified by a spike from a dentil beneath star 13. The two varieties combined for a small mintage of 22,410 pieces, a much lower production than the subsequent 1874 to 1876 CC-mint emissions. The present pumpkin-gold representative is crisply impressed with minimal wear and substantial luster, particularly on the reverse. No abrasions are consequential apart from a trio of slender marks near the nose.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26AJ, PCGS# 8968)
