Description

1863-S Liberty Twenty, MS62
Attractive Type One Coin

1863-S $20 MS62 PCGS. The 1863-S Liberty double eagle claims a large mintage of 966,570 pieces, struck at the height of the Civil War era. Like most Type One double eagles, the 1863-S was easily located in lower grades but virtually unobtainable in Mint State before the shipwreck finds of recent times. The recovery of the S.S. Republic and the S.S. Brother Jonathan yielded nearly 300 relatively high-grade pieces, but most examples seen are in AU grades, and the 1863-S remains rare in MS62 condition.

This attractive MS62 example exhibits well-detailed design elements and pleasing orange and rose-gold surfaces with only minor signs of contact. Satiny mint luster adds to the outstanding eye appeal. Population: 13 in 62, 7 finer (6/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 269R, PCGS# 8940)
