1879-CC $20 AU53 NGC....
Nice 1879-CC Double Eagle, AU531879-CC $20 AU53 NGC. The 1879-CC double eagle has one of the lower mintages for coins produced at the Carson City Mint (10,708 pieces). It is most often seen in Very Fine to Extremely Fine grades. About Uncirculated coins are moderately scarce to rare, and Mint State coins are extremely rare (Douglas Winter, Gold Coins of the Carson City Mint).
Honey-gold patination with a greenish cast enriches this AU53 example, and the fields display partially prooflike characteristics that highlight the devices when the coin is tilted slightly under a light source. A fairly good strike endows the design elements with sharp definition, though Liberty's back curls reveal some weakness. A handful of small marks are visible, but certainly less numerous and severe than what is often found on this issue.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26B7, PCGS# 8989)
