Ron Guth: In July 2006, American Numismatic Rarities offered a cancelled obverse die from an 1872-dated Double Eagle, speculating that it may have come from the Carson City Mint because of a "C" stamped on the shank.  Two other Liberty Head $20 obverse dies have appeared on the market:

1877, attributed to the Carson City Mint, sold in 2002 for $23,000

1882, attributed to the San Francisco Mint, sold in 2001 for $20,700

David Akers (1975/88): The 1877-CC ranks 11th out of 19 Carson City Mint Double Eagles in terms of overall rarity. It is rarer than the 1874-CC, 1875-CC or 1876-CC although it is not quite as difficult to find in Unc. as the 1874-CC. The majority of known 1877-CC twenties grade only VF or EF but AU examples are occasionally available. Most of the relatively few uncs around are bagmarked 60's and in choice mint state the 1877-CC is decidedly rare. In gem condition it is very rare and it is doubtful if more than a couple exist at that level.
