1875-CC Liberty Head Double Eagle. MS-61 (PCGS). CAC.This is a well preserved 1875-CC double eagle that would do justice to an advanced collection of Carson City Mint gold. It is bathed in rich, original color with subtle traces of iridescent toning scattered throughout. The luster is uniform and softly frosted, with only minor handling marks precluding a higher Mint State grade. An incredibly handsome coin to examine, it ranks among the finer survivors of the issue and represents a significant bidding opportunity.<p>In 1875, double eagle production at the Nevada branch mint was stepped up significantly with a sufficiently large mintage of 111,151 pieces, helped by the $1.5 million bullion deposit made by the Consolidated Virginia Mining Company in June of that year. These coins entered circulation in the region and served many years of service. Later on, many examples were shipped abroad, but by this time were quite worn. As one of the most available of the Carson City double eagle issues, the 1875-CC is a particularly popular issue for collectors desiring an example from the legendary Nevada mint. However, this issue is incredibly challenging at the finer Mint State levels, as most Uncirculated survivors exhibit copious marks or other surface problems. The present piece is a notable exception to this rule at the BU grade level and would be difficult to improve upon.PCGS# 8974.
