    1872-CC Double Eagle, AU53
    Scarce Early CC-Mint Issue

    1872-CC $20 AU53 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1-A. The 1872-CC is a popular collector date that always commands a premium from double eagle enthusiasts and Carson City specialists. Old West circulation was seldom kind to Carson City double eagles. Most show a barrage of marks after only a brief foray into the channels of commerce. This coin displays excellent orange-gold color, with substantial mint luster in the protected areas. The strike is sharp, with no unusual weaknesses found and just moderate high-point rub. Fewer bagmarks exist than often encountered, and scattered light abrasions do not diminish the outstanding eye appeal. CAC endorsement adds an important confirmation of quality.
