$20 Double Eagles (Carson City) continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
9018   Image$20.00 1883 CC (#8999).

XF45 NGC (# 4518077002)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $3,500

ESTIMATE: $2,200

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

CONDITION NOTES: Honey-gold with some dark patina on higher points, strong strike, no serious blemishes

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)

XF45 NGC (# 4630990023)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $4,250

ESTIMATE: $2,800

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,200

CONDITION NOTES: Beautiful satiny rose-gold luster, tiny spot on face and a few negligible marks, but overall an extremely attractive example of the historic 1889-CC

COMMENTS: Following the election of Grover Cleveland in 1884, his anti-silver administration suspended all coin mintage at Carson City. After Benjamin Harrison’s election, Carson City began minting silver and gold coins again in 1889. Of the 30,945 1889-CCs released, numismatic experts estimate the 4% to 5% survive (Goe).

AU53 NGC (# 4000921003)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $3,620

ESTIMATE: $2,400

MIN. BID W/O BP: $1,900

CONDITION NOTES: Brilliant semi-reflective rose-gold surfaces, although there is slight wear as is to be expected in the AU53 grade, the marks are scatered and negligible, wonderful eye appeal

COMMENTS: In 1890 a relatively large number of Double Eagles were minted at Carson City -- 91,209, the fourth highest total for all years. It is no secret that a large portion of the surviving pieces -- approximately 3,300-3,600 (Goe) -- are in excellent condition, since many came from the European bank hoards, including virtually all of the About Circulated and Mint State coins.
