David Akers (1975/88): Because of its low mintage, the 1893-CC is held in much higher regard than its true rarity warrants. It is not as rare as the 1892-CC, particularly in Unc., and I rank it only 13th out of 19 Carson City Mint Double Eagles in terms of overall rarity. In mint state, the 1893-CC is at least as common as any other CC twenty and it quite likely is the most common. Literally hundreds of uncs exist (most of them coming from Europe in the late 1960's) and many of them are choice or gem quality. Today, of course, they have all been dispersed and so newcomers to numismatics, not having seen many 1893-CC Double Eagles themselves, may find it hard to believe this issue is really relatively common in Unc., but it definitely is. To be sure, it is not common in the same sense that a 1904 is, but a nice Unc. can be found without a great amount of time or effort expended.
