||1873-CC $20 -- Reverse Damage -- NGC Details. AU. Variety 1-A. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Unlike twenty dollar coins produced at the Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints in 1873, all Carson City double eagles were struck early in the year with the Closed 3 variety. From a mintage of only 22,410 coins, 1873-CC coins are typically encountered in well-circulated grades, and until relatively recently Mint State representatives were unknown. This About Uncirculated piece enjoys beautiful reddish-gold surface coloration and minimally distracting marks for the grade. The insert refers to two linear depressions on the reverse; one is located in the left field adjacent to the eagle's wing and another appears to the left of the R in AMERICA. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $125.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
