Description 1884-CC $20 AU50 NGC. CAC. Variety 1-A. Doug Winter heralds this issue as one of the more plentiful double eagles from the Carson City Mint but, like its 1883 counterpart, it becomes somewhat elusive in Mint State condition, with most such pieces appearing heavily abused from rough transportation and storage. Luminous orange-gold luster highlights original olive-gold patina over each side of this About Uncirculated representative, while the surfaces are distinctly void of any major abrasions. High-point wear is minimal and the devices retain nearly complete detail. Regarding surface quality, Winter notes: "Coins with extremely nice color are generally accorded premiums by knowledgeable collectors." Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3536.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
