Description

Choice AU 1879-CC Double Eagle

1879-CC $20 AU55 NGC. After bountiful mintages (by Carson City standards) between 1874 and 1876, mintages at the legendary Western facility dwindled annually until only 10,708 pieces were struck in 1879. No Carson City double eagles were struck in 1880 or 1881, although half eagles and eagles were coined those two years. As one might expect from its meager production, the 1879-CC twenty is rare, and generally encountered in XF to AU grades. Examples like the present piece that have original orange color, few bagmarks, and noticeable remaining luster are under strong demand from CC-mint gold specialists.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26B7, PCGS# 8989)
