Description

Popular 1866 Motto Double Eagle, MS61
Rare in Mint State

1866 $20 Motto MS61 PCGS. CAC. The 1866 Philadelphia issue double eagle marks the introduction of the Type Two design with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST added to the reverse, and is perennially popular as such among collectors. With a plentiful mintage approaching 700,000 circulation strikes, the 1866 With Motto can be located through Extremely Fine with little difficulty. About Uncirculated pieces are scarce, and Mint State examples are very rare. Both sides of this MS61 specimen display apricot-gold color and well-struck design elements. Scattered light marks preclude a higher grade. Nevertheless, this is a rather nice piece, attested to by the CAC label. Population: 15 in 61, 2 finer (11/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 269X, PCGS# 8949)
