    1885-CC Liberty Double Eagle, AU50
    Challenging Carson City Date

    1885-CC $20 AU50 PCGS. Variety 1-A. If not for a fair number of recent discoveries in foreign holdings, this elusive Carson City issue would rank among the rarest CC dates in high grades. Circulated examples have always been available, although It remains a challenging acquisition nonetheless from a mintage of only 9,450 pieces. A fair amount of that mintage circulated widely in the West. This is a colorful and original, orange-gold example that shows an assortment of minor marks and abrasions, all of which are muted by moderate wear. There are remarkably few marks of any consequence, and bits of mint luster remain primarily on the reverse. The rims are well-preserved. This is an optimal addition to a circulated set of double eagles and an equally pleasing selection for a set of CC twenties.(Registry values: N2998)
