    1877-CC Double Eagle, AU58
    Variety 3-A

    1877-CC $20 AU58 NGC. Variety 3-A. Three obverse dies and four reverse dies were combined in five different combinations at the Carson City Mint in 1877, and those five die pairs were used to strike 42,565 double eagles in 1877 from the new reverse design that had TWENTY DOLLARS spelled out in full. Although this is not a particularly rare variety, we have never handled a finer example of Variety 3-A among attributed double eagles in our archives. This near-Mint example has a sharp strike and fully lustrous yellow-gold surfaces with faint orange overtones on each side.
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 26AZ, PCGS# 8983)
