1879-CC Twenty, AU531879-CC $20 AU53 NGC. The explanation (provided by Rusty Goe) for the low mintage of 1879-CC twenties is that the Nevada mint "decided to make a concerted effort to produce more $5 and $10 gold pieces ... the net result of these decisions and events was the lowest $10 eagle mintage in its history, and the second lowest double eagle mintage of its first 10 years of operation." However, an unusual high percentage of the survivors are XF and AU. This is a pleasing example that has bright surfaces and noticeable mint frost surrounding the devices. The orange-gold surfaces show no mentionable abrasions on either side.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26B7, PCGS# 8989)
