Owner Comments:

This 1879-CC double eagle is in an XF details holder because of rim filing (“test mark”) on reverse above the ‘T’ in states. Test marks were often cut into the rims of CC gold coins from the 1870’s as a way to ensure their authenticity and gold purity. The major grading services will often encapsulate CC coins with minor rim defects, perhaps this one will be in a problem-free holder one day.
