Lot Description
1875-CC $20 MS60 PCGS. Along with the 1884-CC and 1890-CC, the 1875-CC (111,151 pieces minted) is the most obtainable CC-mint Double Eagle, and, in high grade, there are well over 1,000 pieces extant in AU or better condition according to the Winter reference. Its importance as a Type Two issue and the added cachet of its Carson City origin more than offsets the seemingly high availability. This example displays bright cartwheel luster on the obverse, more of a satiny finish on the reverse, and is well struck except for typical softness over Liberty's hair curls.
