Description & Analysis

In terms of both total number of coins known and number of pieces believed extant above the XF grade level, the 1881-CC (24,015 pieces produced) is the most common Carson City Eagle struck prior to 1890. The most accurate estimate on the number of coins extant is 300-400+, with perhaps 30-50 pieces in Mint State (both figures are per Winter and Halperin, 2001).
