    1891-CC Double Eagle, AU Details
    Only 5,000 Pieces Struck

    1891-CC $20 -- Cleaning -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. Variety 1-A. The 1891-CC is a better date in the Carson City short set, boasting a mintage of only 5,000 coins -- only the rare 1870-CC has a smaller mintage. Many 1891-CC coins were shipped overseas in the foreign trade and stored for decades in bank vaults, and these pieces account for the bulk of the surviving population today. The present coin is sharply struck and displays some luster. Lightly hairlined surfaces denote a light cleaning that makes this piece more affordable than an AU-level coin otherwise would be.
    From The R. Thayer Sheets Yorktown Collection.
