    1885-CC Double Eagle, AU58
    Paltry Mintage of 9,450 Coins

    1885-CC $20 AU58 NGC. Variety 1-A. The fields are moderately prooflike on this partly lustrous near-Mint double eagle. Both sides show bright, yellow-gold centers and traces of reddish patina around the rims. The surfaces are minimally abraded for this elusive Carson City issue, which is normally seen with heavy, distracting bagmarks, and the strike is surprisingly bold, if not entirely complete. There is a small planchet imperfection between stars 10 and 11. Otherwise, this is a problem-free, borderline-Uncirculated CC twenty from a paltry mintage of 9,450 coins. Census: 57 in 58, 19 finer (11/19).
    Ex: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 3/2006), lot 2055.
