    1885-CC Liberty Double Eagle, AU55
    Elusive, Low-Mintage Issue

    1885-CC $20 AU55 PCGS. Variety 1-A. CAC. While the 1885-CC is slightly more available than in previous decades thanks to European repatriates, but those coins are quickly assimilated into the market, and there is no denying the issue's ongoing scarcity. It remains the prize Carson City issue from the 1880s. This is a frosted, lightly abraded Choice About Uncirculated example, with plentiful mint luster and vivid greenish-gold color. Eye appeal is strong -- not always the case for 1885-CC twenties. The strike is uniformly sharp on both sides, with Liberty's hair strands well-defined. While numerous small marks pepper the vibrant surfaces, there are none of the heavy abrasions that typify the issue. Only 9,450 pieces were struck. The coin is housed in a previous generation green label holder. Population: 35 in 55, 68 finer (11/19).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26BN, PCGS# 9004)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
