1875-CC Liberty Head Double Eagle. AU-58 (PCGS). CAC. Beautiful saffron-gold patina complements the overall smooth surfaces. Lustrous and frosty with virtually all design elements sharply defined from a well executed strike. An original and attractive example with superior quality confirmed by a green CAC sticker. In 1875, double eagle production at the Carson City 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 saw 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 this legendary Nevada mint. Fortunately for todays numismatists several nice Choice AUs are known, the coin offered here with superior eye appeal for the assigned grade.
