Lot Description
1878-CC $20 AU55 NGC. The Carson City Mint struck double eagles in relatively plentiful quantities between 1874 and 1876. The mintage for the 1877-CC, however, was less than one-third that of the 1876-CC. The 1878-CC continued the production decline, since the mintage of 13,180 pieces was less than one-third that of the 1877-CC. The present exceptional example has a fully lustrous reverse, and obverse luster is diminished only on the open field and cheek. Smooth for a large denomination gold piece, since no marks require mention. Certified in a prior generation holder. From The Guadalupe Collection, Part Two.
