Description

Bright AU55 1879-CC Double Eagle

1879-CC $20 AU55 PCGS. Probably less than a dozen different examples of the 1879-CC double eagle are known in Mint State, despite the combined NGC/PCGS population totals. This is a function both of its skimpy original mintage of 10,708 coins and subsequent survival rate that The Mint on Carson Street author Rusty Goe estimates at 3%-4% in all grades. Most examples encountered fall into the XF-AU grade range. The present Choice AU piece boasts bright yellow-gold coloration of much CC-mint gold with noticeably semiprooflike fields. What is atypical, however, is the lack of the myriad abrasions that often plague the issue. A few abrasions are present, but they are certainly less bothersome than usual. The strike and overall eye appeal are also above-average. A small patch of reddish alloy is noted on the reverse at the eagle's beak. Population: 19 in 55, 24 finer (9/09).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 254B, PCGS# 8989)
