    Choice, Original 1871-CC Double Eagle

    1871-CC $20 XF 40 PCGS. A truly pleasing example of this popular issue with much cleaner surfaces than usual, copious amount of satiny luster, and nice orange-gold and pale greenish hues. As anyone who has tried to find a nice 1871-CC double eagle knows, this issue is characterized by extensively abraded surfaces, and locating pieces that have not been cleaned is very difficult. This coin is in an old PCGS holder and even the most careful observer is bound to find it conservatively graded.
    The 1871-CC is the first collectible Carson City double eagle. It is the second rarest twenty from this mint in terms of its overall and high grade (i.e., AU 50 and better) rarity. There are an estimated 45-55 pieces known in AU and another two or three in Uncirculated.
    From the David & Jeannie Cheung Collection. (NGC ID# 26AB, PCGS# 8961)
