Lot Description
1875-CC $20 MS61 PCGS. Variety 2-B. The large mintage -- 111,151 pieces -- of the 1875-CC double eagle was no accident, as it coincided with the peak production years of Nevada's Comstock Lode. This Mint State example shows glorious luster over beautiful apricot-gold surfaces. A scattering of larger marks intermingles with field chatter on each side, determining the grade while not detracting overmuch from the eye appeal.
