Description

1890-CC Double Eagle, MS62
Very Rare in Higher Grades

1890-CC $20 MS62 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1-A. The 1890-CC Liberty double eagle enjoyed a mintage of 91,209 pieces, a fairly generous total for a Carson City issue. The 1890-CC is not difficult to locate in circulated grades, where Doug Winter estimates a surviving population of 2,300-2,700 pieces, but the date is scarce in Mint State, and virtually unobtainable in grades above MS62.
The present coin is a well-struck MS62 specimen, with attractive orange-gold surfaces that show hints of lilac at the centers. Both sides exhibit rich, vibrant mint luster. A scattering of minor contact marks on both sides explains the grade. Visual appeal is quite strong. Population: 59 in 62, 5 finer (6/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26BY, PCGS# 9014)
