Description & Analysis

Douglas Winter, in his Gold Coins of the Carson City Mint, writes that of all the Carson City double eagles minted during the 1890s the 1892-CC has had its overall and high-grade rarity adversely impacted by hoards discovered since the mid 1990s. He says 'Today, this is among the more available double eagles from this mint.'

Winter estimates that 800 to 900 or so 1892-CC twenties are known, usually in Extremely Fine and About Uncirculated grades. The issue is moderately scarce in the lowest Mint State levels of preservation, and becomes very scarce in MS62. MS63 coins are extremely rare, and higher level specimens are virtually unknown.
