    1873-CC Twenty Dollar, AU58
    Interesting Misplaced Digit, Variety 2-A

    1873-CC $20 AU58 PCGS. Variety 2-A. Extra numismatic interest is added by the presence of the top of a misplaced digit 8 or 3 in the dentils beneath the 73 in the date. This is a partially lustrous example with a softly frosted texture and bright, yellow-gold features. As befits the issue, both sides are boldly defined with a well-balanced appearance. A number of small and medium-sized abrasions pepper the surfaces, particularly the obverse. The 1873-CC (22,410 pieces produced) is not the premier rarity among CC-mint twenties, but it is more difficult to locate than many of the other CC issues. Population: 67 in 58, 16 finer (11/19).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2006), lot 3281.
    From The Key Coin Collection. (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26AJ, PCGS# 8968)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
