Description 1882-CC $20 XF45 NGC. Variety 1-B. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. In Very Fine to About Uncirculated condition, the 1882-CC is a rather available issue. Many of the 39,140 coins struck were exported overseas and returned decades later with signs of light wear. Most high-end representatives are found in near-Mint through lower Uncirculated grades, and anything finer is decidedly rare. Bright, yellow-gold surfaces show a degree of semiprooflike reflectivity in the fields. Liberty's hair is well-detailed, and the stars show full centers. This is a partly lustrous and lightly abraded example with strong appeal. 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 @ $75.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3172.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
