1882-CC. PCGS graded MS-61. CAC Approved PQ. Housed in an Old Green Holder. Only 39,140 minted of which merely 1,167 examples are estimated to have survived. Lovely golden toning with a darker streak through star 13. The mintage of double eagles from the Carson City Mint this year ceased after 39,140 pieces were produced. As demand for coinage was very strong at the time of issue, it seems possible the entire years production quickly found its way into circulation where these heavy gold coins served their useful purpose. Finding a "CC" double eagles from this period in Mint State without heavy bagmarks is difficult to say the least. Here is a coin which should please just about any collector (PCGS # 8997) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.

Realized $23,000
