1882-CC Liberty Head Double Eagle. AU-53 (PCGS). Handsome khaki-gold surfaces with glints of semi-reflective luster shining forth nicely from the more protected areas of the design. Q. David Bowers estimated a circulated population of 900 to 1,200 or more examples for the 1882-CC when he wrote his Guide Book of Double Eagles back in 2004. His estimate has stood the test of time, above average AU examples such as this always in demand among advanced collectors of double eagles and/or Carson City Mint coinage. From the Fairmont Collection.
