David Akers (1975/88): This date ranks in the top third of all Carson City Mint Double Eagles in terms of overall rarity. It is only a little less rare as a date than the 1878-CC and 1879-CC but it is decidedly more "common" than either in high grade, i.e. AU or Unc. When available, the 1885-CC is typically EF although a number of VF specimens also exist. AU's are also seen from time to time but in full mint state the 1885-CC is definitely rare. I have seen a few Unc-60 specimens as well as a couple of choice Unc. examples but I have never seen or heard of a real gem.
