Description 1876-CC $20 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Variety 5-A. The Nevada branch mint struck 138,411 double eagles in 1876, a slight increase over the previous year's production total (111,151 coins) and substantially more than the 42,565 pieces coined in 1877. Examples are fairly accessible in About Uncirculated condition, as large quantities were shipped overseas and later repatriated, often exhibiting signs of mild circulation. This is one such lightly circulated representative with strong remaining design detail and partial luster in the recesses. As the Details designation suggests, the surfaces exhibit wispy hairlines and slight cloudiness in areas from the noted cleaning. A spot of darker toning occurs below Liberty's chin. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2585.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
