Description 1882-CC $20 AU58 NGC. CAC. Variety 1-B. The 1882-CC double eagle had a fairly substantial mintage for a Carson City issue of 39,140 pieces, but many were exported for trade purposes and received light to moderate abuse and circulation; Mint State examples are scarce in any grade, with the vast majority grading no finer than MS61. This frosty near-Mint example displays essentially complete detail and retains substantial mint luster. The surfaces are primarily green-gold, though subtle rose hues are seen in the protected regions. A few minor marks on Liberty's cheek accompany the grade, but the eye appeal is superior to that of many Mint State representatives. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $10575.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
