Description:
Satiny and Lustrous Mint State 1861 Double Eagle
1861 $20 MS64 PCGS. A bright, frosty and very Choice example of this otherwise common date. Of course, in this grade any date of Type I double eagle is quite rare, including even the 1857-S group found in the S. S. Central America shipwreck. This particular coin is fairly well struck with each star showing their radial lines, and the curls well defined on Liberty's head. On the reverse we note full and complete definition on the eagle and peripheral lettering, with just a whisper of softness on the NTY D. near the rims. The true measure of coins in America is the quality of surfaces, and the absence of marks and nicks are paramount to measuring the grade. In this arena the present 1861 did a fantastic job, with quality almost never seen on a double eagle of this date or type. In fact the combined NGC and PCGS population reports show a total of 23 coins graded this high with just eight pieces seen finer. Identifiable by a minor copper spot in the field below the chin and a couple of minor ticks below the forward truncation and below the first star.
From The Gold Rush Collection.(#8932) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 269G, PCGS# 8932)
