Description

1878-CC Twenty Dollar, Choice AU
Rare Variety 2-B, Narrow Mintmark

1878-CC $20 AU55 NGC. Variety 2-B. This rare die pairing shows a Narrow CC mintmark on the reverse, with the first C somewhat lower than the second. The more-common Variety 1-A shows a Wide CC, with the first C higher. The mintage of both combined was a meager 13,180 pieces, a sharp drop from earlier Carson City issues, making the 1878-CC among the rarest CC-mint twenties. This Choice AU specimen displays bright yellow-gold color on each side, complementing a semiprooflike texture in the fields. Small- to medium-sized abrasions are scattered over each side, and the strike is sharp but not full. Census: 45 in 55, 38 finer (9/12).
From The Gnome at the Shore Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26B4, PCGS# 8986)
