In his reference, Gold Coins of the Carson City Mint, Doug Winter calls the 1884-CC one of the "best struck gold issue[s] of any denomination produced at the Carson City mint." Coupled with generally attractive coloration, the high quality of manufacture makes this issue, along with the 1883-CC, widely popular among type specialists seeking a single representative from the short-lived Nevada mint. Subtly lustrous orange and green-gold hues encompass each side of this Choice example, while the surfaces are unusually clean for the grade. Lightly worn, but with substantial high-point detail remaining. 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.
