1877-CC $20 PCGS AU58. Variety 1-B.
An early die state example, before the crack develops near the Y in TWENTY. The strike is bold throughout each side and the surfaces exhibit radiant yellow-gold luster. This issue is one of the less often seen Carson City double eagles in Mint State, notably scarcer at this level than the immediately preceding two issues as well many of the later dates from the 1880s and 1890s. A number of examples wound up in overseas holdings, but most received extensive bagmarks and light wear. This coin has awesome eye-appeal and LOOKS 3 GRADES HIGHER! The price is below dealer bid.
