Lot Description
1878-CC $20 VF35 NGC. The 1878-CC double eagle, unlike its silver dollar counterpart -- or perhaps because of it -- saw a tiny production of 13,180 pieces, small even within the context of CC-mint twenties. This Choice VF example displays yellow-orange coloration with deeper amber hues around the device edges. There is moderate wear as expected, but few significant marks. A popular issue, both for the date and the mintmark.
