Description

1879-CC Twenty, Flashy AU55
Only 10,708 Pieces Struck

1879-CC $20 AU55 NGC. Despite a touch of rub across the high points, this pale straw-gold example retains considerable reflective luster, particularly on the reverse. The strike is strong, and marks are scattered and mostly wispy, though a horizontal abrasion is noted below the 18 in the date. Thanks to its mintage of just 10,708 pieces, the 1879-CC twenty has gained considerable fame among collectors of Old West coinage, and Choice AU and better survivors are particularly prized. NGC shows 56 higher-graded pieces, but this number doubtless includes resubmissions (2/12).
Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 1920.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 338L, PCGS# 8989)
