    1878-CC Twenty Dollar, AU53
    Conditionally Elusive CC-Mint Issue

    1878-CC $20 AU53 NGC. Variety 3-A. There is a die gouge on the reverse below the D in DOLLAR, shaped like a check mark. On the obverse, the base of the 7 is directly centered over a dentil, identifying this rarely seen die combination. The present coin represents this Carson City issue well. Detail is bold and wear light, and each side has rich reddish-gold and honey hues. Scattered contact marks accompany the grade, as expected. The 1878-CC is elusive in AU grades and downright rare in Mint State. Many About Uncirculated pieces have better eye appeal than the low-grade Mint State coins known.
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26B4, PCGS# 8986)
