Description 1892-CC $20 AU53 NGC. Variety 1-A. After plummeting to just 5,000 pieces the year before, double eagle production at the Carson City Mint made a small comeback in 1892, with a mintage of 27,265 coins. While this production total was still rather small, enough examples survived (largely via overseas holdings) that the collector will have little difficulty locating one. Most extant pieces, however, are heavily abraded, thus the rarity of high-grade examples. This sharply detailed AU representative retains substantial bronze-gold luster, with subtle auburn and peach overtones in the border recesses. A highly attractive coin for the grade, with surfaces that are uncharacteristically void of major flaws. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4846.88.
