1890-CC $20.00 NGC AU58 CAC

This very lightly worn CC double eagle shows very clean surfaces for the date and grade. Both the obverse and rerverse are lustrous and show pleasing orange-gold and rose color. In my opinion, this choice, clean example is preferable the typical MS60 to MS61 example that might have a bit more lustrous but which also has many more abrasions and less eye appeal. The 1890-CC is one of the more available double eagles from this mint and the lack of date premium ascribed to this issue makes it ideal for type purposes.
