Description:
Appealing 1891-CC Double Eagle, AU58
1891-CC $20 AU58 NGC. The 1891-CC twenty is an important rarity, and has the second lowest mintage of any double eagle from this mint (5,000 pieces), behind the 1870-CC (3,789 coins). It is extremely difficult to locate in Mint State, and when seen in that condition is likely to be between MS60 and MS62. A mere two MS63 have been certified, and none finer.
Just a trace of wear on the very highest design points keep this specimen from the Mint State grades. The fields are very slightly reflective and each side has nearly complete luster and is sharply struck. Hints of rose, sky-blue, and lavender toning confined to the peripheries, mostly on the reverse, add to the overall aesthetic appeal. A few minute bag marks and luster grazes are noted on the obverse, but do not distract. Census: 69 in 58, 36 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26C3, PCGS# 9017)
