Description

1879-CC Twenty, AU53
Scarce Low-Mintage Issue

1879-CC $20 AU53 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1-A. The 1879-CC has an impressively low mintage of only 10,708 pieces. While a few coins have emerged in recent years from a small hoard, high-grade examples remain rare. Only 300-350 pieces are believed known in all grades, and usually an AU53 example such as this one is as fine as will ever be found. This impressive coin has not had its eye appeal diminished to any significant degree by slight handling in circulation. The fields retain bright, shimmering semiprooflikeness on each side. The strike is strong overall, and only small abrasions pepper each side. Population: 20 in 53, 45 finer (7/11).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26B7, PCGS# 8989)
