    1893-CC Twenty in Mint State
    Final-Year Carson City Favorite

    1893-CC $20 MS61 NGC. Variety 2-A. The final-year of Carson City coinage operations delivered a modest mintage of 18,402 double eagles, most of which were exported for foreign obligations. Many repatriated coins have since made their way into collector's hands, making this formerly rare date much more available than it once was.

    This flax-gold example displays a crisp strike and glimpses of prooflikeness, enhanced by cartwheel luster. The fields are a bit too busy for the next higher grade, yet none of the abrasions are deep or troublesome in the context of an MS61 coin. Lightly frosted devices show sharp detail on Liberty's hair strands and on the eagle's head, tail, and arrow fletchings. Overall, the coin is above average for its Uncirculated grade and quite appealing -- always a favorite issue for Carson City gold collectors.
