1882-CC $20.00 NGC AU58 CAC

This is exactly the sort of AU58 Carson City double eagle that, as a collector, I would like to have in my collection. There is no real evidence of circulation; just some slight friction on the high spots that is probably the result of having been shipping in a bag. Both sides show deep, rich natural orange-gold color that is extremely attractive. The underlying surfaces are very clean with no marks of note and a good deal of luster present as well. The 1882-CC is the second scarcest CC double eagle from the 1880's trailing only the 1885-CC. It is a rare and high-priced coin in MInt State, meaning that a Gem Slider such as this is an excellent value and in strong demand amongst a large segment of collectors.
