1875-CC $20.00 NGC AU58 CAC

You don't often see Carson City double eagles that are nearly free of marks and this coin is just that: a piece that probably never saw circulation and somehow avoided the throw-it-in-a-bag fate that met so many of these coins when they were shipped. Both sides have thick, frosty luster with nice rose and green-gold color. A few small grease stains on the obverse are mint-made and do not detract.
