    1885-CC Double Eagle, AU53
    Above-Average Nevada Mint Product

    1885-CC $20 AU53 PCGS. Variety 1-A. Carson City coinage production was limited to silver dollars and double eagles in 1885, the same year Superintendent James Crawford died. Only 9,450 of these twenty dollar gold pieces were struck, after which point the facility would cease operations until 1889. This is one of about 400 to 500 1885-CC double eagles extant, and it grades three full points higher than average. The coin is typically struck with light friction and scattered marks. Greenish-gold surfaces show bright mint frost around the devices and reddish accents on each side. A challenging Nevada mint issue.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26BN, PCGS# 9004)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
