    1882-CC Liberty Head Twenty, MS62
    Only One Coin Certified Finer

    1882-CC $20 MS62 NGC. Variety 1-A. The 1882-CC is one of the more available Liberty Head double eagles from the Carson City Mint. In spite of the relatively small mintage of 39,140 pieces, the issue has appeared regularly in auction catalogs and dealer offerings in recent decades. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth believe the date may have been represented in European hoards and repatriated in fairly large numbers. Doug Winter estimates a surviving population of 800-900 pieces in all grades. The issue becomes scarce in higher AU grades, and experts believe only 30-35 examples are extant in Mint State.
    The present coin is at the pinnacle of obtainable pieces, as only one coin has been certified finer at either of the leading grading services (11/09). This impressive example is fully struck, with bright yellow-gold surfaces and semiprooflike fields. Lightly abraded and nice for the grade, the only mentionable mark is between F and A on the reverse. Census: 11 in 62, 0 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26BF, PCGS# 8997)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
