1875-CC Liberty Double Eagle. AU-58 (NGC). Pleasing light yellow-gold with a greenish hint in the lustrous fields. The strike is sharp and the surfaces nicer than average. There are a couple of minor nicks on Liberty's cheek and another in the field before her nose, but these blend into the surfaces well and are not that detracting. This coin appears to be Breen's number 7258 with strong doubling on the reverse legend and the placement of the close CC does not quite match the two listed in Doug Winter's reference. Perhaps this is a third variety from this ever popular mint.
