Lot Description
1878-CC $20 VF35 NGC. Variety 1-A, although only one die marriage was used to produce the scant mintage of 13,180 coins. No distractions require individual mention on this pleasing, red-gold exemplar, and honest wear defines the grade. Dave Bowers, in his Guide Book of Double Eagle Gold Coins, opines that the 1878-CC "is one of the keys to the Carson City double eagle series."
