Lot Description
1875-CC $20 MS63 NGC. Variety 2-B. Though the '75-CC ranks among the more available Type Two Carson City issues, the mintage is less than one-tenth its San Francisco cousin, and the typical survivor grades XF45. But the present Select example features unbroken cartwheel luster and has no trace of high point friction. We note a thin streak of struck-in grease from star 13 to the neck curls, but the reverse is minimally abraded and the obverse lacks any individually consequential marks. Virtually unobtainable any finer. Census: 25 in 63 (1 in 63+), 1 finer (5/12).
