A pleasing example of the date and grade combination with lively luster on deep golden surfaces. The devices are lightly frosted and the fields moderately reflective, and no marks of a serious nature can be seen with the unaided eye. Whenever a Mint State Carson City double eagle comes up for bids, the bidding moves along at a fast and furious pace, even for a date such as the 1890-CC which is one of the few double eagles from that mint that can be found in Uncirculated with only moderate difficulty. The 1890-CC is in great demand in MS-61 or MS-62 and typically satisfies collectors in those grades -- just a half dozen examples of the date have been certified by PCGS at the MS-63 level, with none finer, and those six pieces could very well be hidden away in advanced double eagle collections. A coin that deserves to be seen before bidding judgment is passed.
