Description

1879-CC Double Eagle, AU53
Low-Mintage Carson City Issue

1879-CC $20 AU53 PCGS. Variety 1-A. The 1879-CC Liberty Head double eagle boasts a low mintage of 10,708 pieces, the fourth smallest production total of the series. Doug Winter believes perhaps 300-350 examples survive today in all grades, with approximately 60-80 specimens in AU. A single variety is known for the date.
The present coin is a pleasing AU53 example, with sharply impressed devices and a minimum number of abrasions for the grade. The surfaces are a bright greenish-gold color, with much prooflike reflectivity. Only slight traces of wear can be detected on the design elements. Eye appeal is strong. Population: 19 in 53, 46 finer (9/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26B7, PCGS# 8989)
