Lot 1834

1874-CC. NGC graded AU-58. Well struck and untoned with reflective surfaces. From the Bass Collection. Many of the double eagles in the Bass Collection were acquired in the 1960s and 1970s when choice specimens were more available than they are today. As his numismatic expertise became known, Harry Bass was given first choice of many outstanding coins such as this lovely semi-prooflike '74-CC. Pop 201; 16 finer, 1 in 58+, 9 in 60, 5 in 61, 1 in 62 (PCGS # 8971) .

Historic Note: In 1866 the reverse of the Liberty Head $20 gold was modified by adding the motto IN GOD WE TRUST within the circle of stars above the eagle. This motto was continued from this point forward. The type minted from 1866 through 1876 is designated as Type 2 by coin collectors, being defined by the combination of the IN GOD WE TRUST motto with the denomination below expressed as TWENTY D.
Estimated Value $6,500 - 7,000.
Ex: Bass Collection.

Realized $10,350
