The 1882-CC is a much tougher date than the 1883-CC, 1884-CC and 1889-CC though it is not nearly as scarce as the low mintage 1885-CC. It becomes hard to find in nice AU55 to AU58 and it is a rare coin in Uncirculated with a five-figure price tag. This mostly lustrous example has the eye appeal of many 1882-CC double eagles that I have seen in AU58 holders. It shows nice medium green-gold color and it has very choice surfaces with just a few small marks visible under magnification. My guess is that this coin saw no actual circulation but it incurred some light wear and rubbing when it was shipped loose in a bag. This would be a perfect type coin for the collector seeking a single nice quality Carson City double eagle.
