A very tough 1891 CC liberty head double eagle gold piece graded Extra Fine Details Improperly Cleaned by NGC. This coin has a pleasing amount of detail for the grade. We believe on a good day this coin could end up in a problem free holder. We agree that it has been cleaned at some time but we have seen worse examples in problem free holders.
This tough Carson City Mint date is the lowest mintage of the Carson City coins for the double eagle series. This date carries a very low mintage of only 5,000 which makes it by far the lowest mintage Carson City coin. We believe only a small fraction of this mintage actually exist today with this date very seldom becoming available on the market.
