    1889-CC Liberty Double Eagle, MS61
    Scarce Branch Mint Type Three Issue

    1889-CC $20 MS61 PCGS. Variety 1-A. Coinage operations were suspended at the Carson City Mint after 1885, and the facility functioned as an assay office until 1889. The buildings were repaired and the equipment was updated in 1889 and coinage was resumed late in the year. Only 30,945 Liberty double eagles were struck, but the issue is more available than that small production total would suggest, due to a significant hoard that surfaced in Europe in the 1990s.

    The present coin is an impressive Mint State specimen, with well-detailed design elements that show just a trace of softness on the letters in LIBERTY. The pleasing orange-gold surfaces are lightly marked for the grade and retain most of their original mint luster. The overall presentation is most attractive. Population: 63 in 61, 68 finer (9/19).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26BV, PCGS# 9011)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
