VERY CHOICE CAC APPROVED PCGS MS62+ 1890-CC DOUBLE EAGLE
As with all of the comparatively available Type Three issues from this mint, the 1890-CC double eagle is rare in properly graded MS62 and virtually unavailable finer.
This coin is nice enough that I tired it a number of coins for an MS63 grade (sigh...) and it is clearly vastly finer than nearly any CC double eagle graded MS62. It is extremely frosty with choice surfaces and rich natural orange-gold color with soft rose undertone. There are a few stray contact marks on Liberty's face which ultimately limit the grade but these are hard to see without the aid of magnification.
No PCGS MS62+ 1890-CC double eagle has ever sold at auction. The last PCGS MS62 with CAC approval was this exact coin; see below for further provenance.
This example is destined for a world-class collection of Carson City double eagles.
CAC has approved 12 in MS62 (with at least one in MS62+) with just one finer (MS63).
Last sold as Lot 2678 in Stacks Bowers 6/14 auction where is sold for $30,500 as a CAC approved PCGS MS62; earlier Lot 660 in Stacks Bowers 7/2002 sale where it brought $17,250 as a raw "MS63."
