    1872-CC Liberty Twenty, AU50
    Better Early Date

    1872-CC $20 AU50 PCGS. Variety 1-A. The 1872-CC is not as rare in AU as the two earlier issues from this mint, although the number of coins extant is not that high compared to demand for early Carson City double eagles. These are challenging dates in the popular CC-mint short set. The present 1872-CC is boldly detailed with yellow-gold patina that shows remnants of luster in the protected regions of the fields. Scattered abrasions and handling marks accompany the grade, although high-point wear is minimal. The 1872-CC is particularly scarce in high grade when sought in a PCGS holder.
