1884-CC Liberty Head Double Eagle. MS-62 (PCGS). CAC.

$16,000

Exceptional 1884-CC Liberty $20

Just 4 finer at CAC.

An uncommonly well preserved and attractive example of this popular Carson City Mint issue. Undeniably original surfaces are bathed in a blend of softly frosted luster and handsome sandy-gold color. Fully struck and aesthetically pleasing in every respect. Just 4 coins rank finer at CAC, emphasizing the conditionally challenging nature of this issue.

Only 81,139 double eagles were coined at the Carson City Mint in 1884. Although most known examples are circulated, hundreds of Mint State coins also exist. Many were shipped overseas for payments that required gold. Q. David Bowers said that these first started to appear in returns from foreign bank holdings beginning around 1950. His 2004 Guide Book of Double Eagles gave a high end estimate of 500 pieces for the Mint State population. Recently (2020), however, Carson City Mint expert Rusty Goe put forth a more conservative estimate of 330 to 370 Mint State survivors. While both ranges constitute a generous population by Carson City Mint double eagle standards, the vast majority of Uncirculated coins are in the lowest grades (MS-60 and MS-61). Nearly Choice, the example offered here ranks among the finer certified and is sure to find its way into an above average double eagle or Carson City Mint set.
