Lot Details
1871-CC $20
Deeply set olive-gold color provides a pleasingly original appearance to both sides. Contrary to what many believe, the 1871-CC is actually among the more sharply struck Type Two double eagles from the 1870s. The present example, while moderately worn, does possess ample remaining detail over all features with the exception of a few star centrils and the highest points of Liberty's portrait on the obverse. Light and moderate abrasions pepper both sides, but their number is not uncommonly high for a CC-mint twenty that spent some time in circulation. After the 1870-CC, the second-year 1871-CC is the rarest double eagle produced in the Carson City Mint. Only 200-250 pieces are believed extant from an original mintage of 17,387 pieces.
