    Description

    1874-CC Twenty Dollar, AU58
    Partially Lustrous, Original Surfaces

    1874-CC $20 AU58 PCGS. Variety 1-A. The Carson City Mint struck more than 115,000 double eagles in 1874, but most circulated or were exported. Mint State survivors are scarce, and most are heavily abraded. This near-Mint coin is a collectible alternative to a Mint State coin. Luster remains in the protected regions, illuminating original olive-gold and brassy patina, with bold detail throughout the devices. Scattered abrasions include a small mark in the obverse field near star 1 and a shallow scrape on the reverse above the WE in TWENTY. Nonetheless, eye appeal is excellent for this high-end 1874-CC double eagle. Population: 93 in 58 (3 in 58+), 31 finer (2/21).(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26AP, PCGS# 8971)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
