    Elusive Almost Uncirculated 1873-CC Double Eagle

    1873-CC $20 Double Eagle AU58 SEGS (AU58 Obverse Planchet Flaw, Obverse Lightly Cleaned). The 1873-CC $20, even when comparisons are limited to Carson City Double Eagles, is a difficult issue in all grades. From a mintage of just 22,410 pieces, most survivors show at least 10 and often 20-30 points of wear. A cigar-shaped planchet flaw connects the first two obverse stars. The mint luster is essentially complete on the reverse, but is broken in the obverse field. There is a small scratch between the final two stars, but overall, the surfaces do not have many abrasions for a large gold coin.
