David Akers (1975/88)

The 1882-CC is a moderately scarce date in all grades and ranks right in the middle of the Carson City Mint Double Eagles (9th out of 19) in terms of overall rarity. It is similar in overall rarity to the 1877-CC, 1889-CC and 1892-CC (a little more rare perhaps) and is decidedly more rare than any of the other CC-Mint issues that follow except the 1885-CC and 1891-CC. Locating an 1882-CC is not a terribly difficult task if one is willing to accept a coin that is less than Unc. In average uncirculated condition (MS-60), the 1882-CC is very scarce and in choice Unc. the date is rare. A few gems exist but they are very rare.
