Historical 1863 Double Eagle, AU581863 $20 AU58 NGC. This is an absolutely wonderful double eagle that survives from a modest mintage of only 142,790 coins. Struck at the height of the Civil War, this piece is an important reminder of nearby events during the year, including the famous battle at Gettysburg, and Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. Now, 14 score and five years after it was struck, the present piece ranks among a small number of attractive survivors. Both sides have nearly full luster with rich lemon-yellow color. A few small marks in the obverse field, as well as a trace of wear on the highpoints, prevents a higher grade. Census: 33 in 58, 21 finer (7/08).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 269P, PCGS# 8939)
