David Akers (1975/88): Despite its higher price, which is due solely to the fact that it is a Carson City Mint issue, the 1890-CC is by far the most common of the three Double Eagles of this year. It is also one of the three commonest CC-Mint twenties along with the 1875-CC and 1884-CC. It is readily obtainable in any grade up to and including average uncirculated. In Choice Unc. it can be considered no more than scarce and there is also a substantial number of gems in existence. Literally hundreds of uncs of this date exist, most of them having come back to the United States from Europe in the late 1960's.
