Appealing 1864 Twenty Dollar, MS621864 $20 MS62 PCGS. The 1864 double eagle (204,235 business strikes) is most often seen in Extremely Fine grades. It is scarce in the lower About Uncirculated grades, rare in AU55 to AU58, and is extremely rare in Mint State (Douglas Winter and Adam Crum, 2002). PCGS and NGC have graded a total of 33 Uncirculated coins, all but three specimens in MS60 to MS63.
The rich peach-gold surfaces of this MS62 specimen display semi-prooflike fields that yield pronounced contrast with the devices, especially when it rotated under a light source. The strike is better than often seen on the issue, including boldness in the star centers. A few light obverse marks limit the grade, nevertheless, this piece generates great eye appeal for the grade designation.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 269S, PCGS# 8941)
