    1871-CC Double Eagle, XF45
    Early Carson City Rarity

    1871-CC $20 XF45 PCGS. Variety 1-A. Second only to the 1870-CC in low mintage and limited survivorship, the 1871-CC circulated heavily in the West. Apparently, almost the entire 17,387-piece mintage was earmarked for distribution into local commerce. Most examples are heavily bagmarked and abraded as a result. Bright, orange-gold color dominates both sides of this lightly abraded, Choice XF Carson City twenty. Tinges of red toning appear at the margins. Myriad small marks dot the surfaces, while the strike is softened by 15 points of wear. Considering most survivors are well-worn, this solid XF coin is sure to turn the heads of many CC-mint enthusiasts and double eagle aficionados. Population: 48 in 45, 35 finer (11/19).
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 26AB, PCGS# 8961)
