Dominant olive-orange patina with tinges of slightly more vivid pinkish rose iridescence also flashing into view from around the reverse periphery. Lightly worn with considerable luster remaining, faint hairlining is noted for accuracy. With just 13,180 pieces produced, the 1878-CC is among the rarest issues in the Carson City Mint double eagle series of 1870-1893.
