    1885-CC Double Eagle, AU53
    Low-Mintage Carson City Issue

    1885-CC $20 AU53 NGC. Variety 1-A. A mintage of only 9,450 double eagles at Carson City in 1885 ensures the scarcity of this date today in high grade. Carson City struck more than 81,000 coins the year prior, and nearly 60,000 in 1883. Compared to those two "common" CC-mint dates, the 1885-CC is rare in Mint State. Attractive AU coins are typically the finest available to collectors who do not want to shell out a great deal of funds. Among AU coins, this piece is quite exceptional. Although wear is a little more applied than that of AU58 coins, this AU53 piece is remarkably smooth, and its fields retain elements of luster that complement the details of the devices. Brass-gold coloration on each side completes the visual attributes.
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26BN, PCGS# 9004)
