Semi-prooflike with beautiful deep, rich orange-gold color that is contrasted by darker hues on the highlights. This coin, which is clearly sourced from Europe and which has the lovely Euro look I often mention, has the body and flash of a higher grade but the surfaces are a bit "chattery" as is often the case with examples of this era. It is unusual to see an 1876-CC double eagle that is reflective and it is becoming very hard to find pieces that are as original as this one is. As a date, the 1876-CC is only moderately scarce but it becomes pricey in any grade approaching Uncirculated. A nice example for the collector who is just beginning to take the plunge into the world of CC double eagles.
