    1878-CC Twenty Dollar, AU58
    Rare in Near-Mint or Finer Grades

    1878-CC $20 AU58 NGC. Variety 1-A. With fewer than 70 pieces known in AU58 or finer grades, the 1878-CC is rarer than the 1879-CC in high grade, and slightly scarcer overall according to combined PCGS and NGC populations, despite a slightly higher mintage. Just 13,180 pieces were stuck, yet two die pairs were needed for the small mintage. Nearly all survivors display a lengthy die scratch on Liberty's neck near the curls, and additional die lines at D in DOLLARS.

    This is an attractive near-Mint coin, with most of its mint luster intact and sharply struck devices. Tiny marks and wispy abrasions suggest brief circulation. A short reeding mark near the bust tip is the sole individual mark of note, although it is minor compared to the normal bagmarks that exist on most Carson City twenties. Vibrant rich-gold color radiates from both sides. Census: 33 in 58, 6 finer (11/19).
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26B4, PCGS# 8986)

    Weight: 33.44 grams
