    1872-CC Twenty Dollar, AU55
    Plentiful Luster Remains

    1872-CC $20 AU55 NGC. Variety 1-A. Compared with other Carson City twenties, the 1872-CC is relatively available in most grades. This AU55 coin is a bright, buttercup-gold example with light-orange accents at the rims. A combination of wear and strike limit the detail at Liberty's hair, although the peripheral elements are sharp. Mint luster flashes throughout the reverse and along the obverse margins. Light abrasions and tiny marks dot the surfaces. A moderate mintage of 26,900 pieces provides a reasonable number of Choice coins at the middle AU grades, but diminishing availability progresses with each step up the grading ladder. Mint State examples top out at the MS62 grade. Census: 70 in 55 (1 in 55+ ), 66 finer (11/19).
