NGC XF45The 1879-CC Liberty Head Double Eagle is a Key Date Type-III coin. Graded NGC XF45, this coin is boldly defined, aesthetically pleasing, and worthy of inclusion in an advanced collection of double eagles or Carson City Mint coinage. The 1879-CC Liberty double eagle is an elusive issue, from a small mintage of 10,708 pieces, accomplished in two batches using a single pair of dies, making it the only known variety. The 1879-CC is the second-lowest double eagle mintage of the 1870s from the Carson City Mint and the fourth lowest among all CC twenties. Today, surviving population numbers are only 300-350 pieces in all grades. The 1879-CC is most often seen in Very Fine to Extremely Fine grades. About Uncirculated specimens are scarce to rare and mint State coins are extremely rare. The 1879-CC is a popular issue because of its impressively low mintage, and a desired coin for any $20 Gold Liberty collection.
