Description

Exceptional MS60 1879-CC Double Eagle
An Important Condition Rarity

1879-CC $20 MS60 NGC. Examples of this low mintage issue (10,708 pieces) are most often seen in Very Fine to Extremely Fine grades. About Uncirculated specimens are scarce to rare and mint State coins are extremely rare. NGC and PCGS have seen fewer than 20 of the latter, none above MS62.
The present Uncirculated offering displays crisply defined design features, characteristic of most '79-CCs. Semiprooflikeness is seen in the fields which highlight the devices. Distributed marks are visible over each side, a situation plaguing the majority of Carson City double eagles (Douglas Winter, 2001, p. 173). These are mostly small, however, and perhaps fewer and less severe than what might be expected for the designated grade. The often-encountered copper spots are lacking on this coin. Census: 3 in 60, 5 finer (10/09).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26B7, PCGS# 8989)
