Double Eagle "CC"'s are King of the highly collectible "CC" coinage. Struck at the Carson City mint in 1889, this coin is part of the total combined mintage of only 864,178 double eagles struck for the ENTIRE dated series from 1870-1893! Survival rates for "CC" double eagles range between 2%-4% of original mintages. Specifically, the 1889-CC mintage is a mere 30,945 pieces. It is extremely hard to locate an 1889-CC that is not heavily bag marked or cleaned. To quote leaders in the field, "A piece with good eye appeal is very scarce and it commands a strong premium among knowledgeable specialists."
