    1885-CC Double Eagle, AU58
    Semikey Carson City Issue

    1885-CC $20 AU58 NGC. Variety 1-A. From a mintage standpoint, the 1885-CC ranks among the rarest Carson City double eagles -- only the 1870-CC and 1891-CC were produced in lesser quantities. Returning coins from European holdings have swelled the number of certified examples, although the '85-CC remains among the top ten CC-mint twenties in both overall and high-grade rarity.

    This near-Mint coin is shows numerous abrasions across both sides, but actual wear is indistinguishable. Bright mint luster remains throughout the rich, yellow-gold surfaces. A sharp strike exists, along with a high degree of just-minted eye appeal. We note a brief, narrow streak of mint grease that runs along the upper-right shield edge. Despite the moderate surface chatter, there are no overly heavy or distracting marks.
    From The Key Coin Collection. (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26BN, PCGS# 9004)

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
