One of the premier coins ever conceived for circulation, the High Relief double eagle is simply a delight to own. The devices are deeply engraved into the dies, so the coins struck have a definite three-dimensional appearance. Liberty appears to be walking right off the coin, and the eagle looks as though it's just flying by. Evidence of more than one blow from the dies is especially prominent on Liberty's hair and on the branch held in her left hand. The surfaces display yellow-gold color, and are well preserved. A minute mark below the T in LIBERTY might be used to identify the piece. Population: 61 in 66, 19 finer (9/05).
