Description 1876-CC $20 AU55 NGC. CAC. Variety 5-A. Garrett and Guth write of this issue in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins: "... large numbers of the 1876-CC double eagle have made their way back to America [from Europe and South America]. As can be seen from the auction records for the date, the issue is readily available." They go on to note: "The coins were shipped loose in bags, and survivors have many abrasions." This Choice AU representative is a refreshing exception in that regard, as a few faint marks in the field near Liberty's forehead are the only flaws of note, and even these are only weakly visible. Radiant yellow-gold luster blends into the recesses on each side, while the relief elements remain well-defined. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $7637.50.
