Description & Analysis

This is the final issue of the Carson City Mint, struck in the very last year of coinage operations at the Nevada branch. This is a remarkable example that almost appears as if special care were taken, as suggested by Rusty Goe: 'Whether or not the coiner and his staff at the Carson Mint knew that 1893 would be the finale is debatable. What is evident from the surviving population of 1893-CC double eagles is that the workers put forth extra effort to produce the highest quality coins possible and collectors today can thank them for this. When beholding just about any problem-free 1893-CC in AU or above, one can see the superiority of the strike, luster, and color.'
