Lot Description
1875-CC $20 MS63 PCGS. Ex: Texas Collection. Between its relatively high (six-figure) initial mintage and a generous survival rate, the 1875-CC is the most accessible Type Two Carson City double eagle in a wide range of grades, including MS63; at the Select level, however, it is a condition rarity, and only two MS64 or better coins, one graded by NGC and the other PCGS, are in the combined certified population (9/12). This broadly reflective example has a strong cartwheel effect on both sides, but the reverse in particular is a standout. Lightly abraded apricot-gold surfaces show minor copper spotting around stars 4 and 5 on the obverse. From The Gnome at the Shore Collection.
