$20 Double Eagles (Carson City)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
9007   Image$20.00 1874 CC (#8971).

AU53 PCGS (# 34406418)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $4,750

ESTIMATE: $3,000

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,400

CONDITION NOTES: Brilliant semi-reflective surfaces with significant original luster, very minor marks and overall a strong AU53 -- in fact, this is superior to the other 53s we surveyed in auction records, many of which have significant marks, which are absent from this piece

COMMENTS: The 1874 Carson City Double Eagle was this mint’s first significant release. The large mintages in 1874, 1875 and 1876 are attributed by numismatic scholars to the availability of gold from the Comstock Lode in these years (Goe). Unlike other years, few have come from the European bank hoards. (Image) (image2)

MIN. BID W/O BP: $1,600

CONDITION NOTES: Rich gold color and overall attractive appearance for this mid-grade 1875 Carson City Double Eagle

MIN. BID W/O BP: $1,700

COMMENTS: The Centennial Year 1876 Double Eagle was the last of the Type IIs produced at the Carson City Mint. 138,441 pieces were struck there. Expert numismatists estimate approximately 3,500-4,000 survive in all grades (Goe). Most of the higher grade pieces come from European bank hoards. (Image) (image2)

AU53 NGC (# 4876070001)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $7,880

ESTIMATE: $5,000

MIN. BID W/O BP: $4,000

CONDITION NOTES: Lovely satiny luster and minimal marks for this grade, pinkish hue at lower left of obverse add to this beautiful Carson City Double Eagle, much scarcer in AU53 or higher grades than other years

COMMENTS: Beginning with the 1877 mintage, Chief Engraver William Barber modified the Double Eagle design, most significantly by spelling out the TWENTY DOLLARS” denomination. The 1877-CCs were struck at a slower rate than the 1874, 1875 and 1876 mintages. The 1877 has a lower survival rate, and most are in Circulated mid grades. (Image) (image2)

AU55 NGC (# 4656070006)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $5,620

ESTIMATE: $3,500

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,800

CONDITION NOTES: Fantastic Mint State appearance with brilliant light yellow-gold luster on both sides, a few minor bag marks apparently kept this from a higher grade, but this is really superior to all of the AU55s we surveyed in auction record photos

COMMENTS: 39,140 Double Eagles were struck at the Carson City Mint in 1882. Most circulated on the West Coast, but a quantity of those shipped overseas were recovered in the European bank hoards. (Image) (image2)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $3,810

ESTIMATE: $2,500

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,000

AU53 PCGS (# 25253235)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $4,410

ESTIMATE: $2,900

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,300

CONDITION NOTES: Brilliant reflective surfaces on both sides of this fabled Carson City Double Eagle, sharp strike, there are scattered minor marks, but certainly a strong AU53 piece with Mint State overall appearance

COMMENTS: The 1883 Carson City Double Eagle has a fairly high rate of survival (approximately 1,000 extant), considering that only 59,962 pieces were released. Some of this population was returned from the European bank hoards. Nonetheless, with its origin at the celebrated Carson City Mint, it is one of the more desirable Double Eagles. (Image) (image2)
