1875-CC $20.00 PCGS AU58

There are oodles of 1875-CC double eagles graded AU58 by both PCGS and NGC but only a small handful have the eye appeal of this coin. It has very rich orange-gold color with contrasting deeper highlights (it is likely from a European source) and a good deal of luster is present on both the obverse and the reverse. Some light scuffing on the obverse removes this coin from an MS61 grade but it is free of actual wear and the reverse is extrmely choice with an MS62 or better appearance. This is as nice a "slider" example of this popular date as you are likely to find and it would make a great type coin for the collector looking for one special Type One CC double eagle for his set.
