    1872-CC Double Eagle, AU50
    Red-Gold Color, Hints of Luster
    Third Year of Carson City Production

    1872-CC $20 AU50 PCGS. Variety 2-A. The 1 in the date nearly touches Liberty's bust, and the mintmark is narrowly spaced over the N in TWENTY. Double eagle output continued to grow as the Carson City Mint entered its third year of operation, with production rising to 26,900 coins. In 2003, Rusty Goe estimated a survivorship of 450 to 500 coins, a total that seems a bit conservative based on the combined certification totals at PCGS and NGC. Still, the 1872-CC remains unquestionably scarce in AU condition, and examples are highly sought-after. This sharply defined red-gold representative glows softly with hints of original luster. There are a few thin lines around Liberty's neck. Abrasions are otherwise undistracting.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26AE, PCGS# 8964)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
