Stack's Bowers Auction Spring 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Mar-2019 1892-CC Liberty Head Double Eagle. AU-53 (PCGS). Blended pinkish-rose highlights enliven otherwise honey-gold surfaces on both sides of this richly original example. Lustrous and sharply defined AU quality from the fabled Nevada coinage facility. The Carson City Mint produced 27,265 double eagles in 1892, up more than 22,000 coins over the previous year's production figure at this facility. Face value amounted to $545,300. This issue was considered to be quite scarce for many years, and even today it is hardly plentiful. In the late 1950s Jim Kelly imported quite a few. His retail price in 1957 was $90, when a common date double eagle sold for about $40. Thanks to repatriations facilitated by Kelly and others, we believe that 1,250 to 1,750 or so circulated examples of the 1892-CC can be found today. Most grade VF or EF with AU examples such as this scarce. Prior to the 1960s, most "name" collections had a VF or occasional EF example of this issue. Provenance: From the Fairmont Collection. PCGS# 9020. NGC ID: 26C6. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
