Description

Mint State 1869-S Double Eagle
Deep, Rich Reddish-Gold Color

1869-S $20 MS61 PCGS. The 1869-S double eagle survivors span a wide grade range. Circulated examples trade like any common Type Two double eagle, with little premium. Mint State coins are quite rare, and most Mint State coins are no finer than MS61, the grade of the present example. But a few near-Gem survivors have traded for breathtaking prices, and PCGS has seen five submissions at that grade level, while NGC has seen three. This MS61 example displays deep, rich reddish-gold color overall, deeper at the margins. The strike is somewhat irregular, and numerous small- to medium-sized abrasions appear on each side. A spot on the lower portion of the hair bun provides a pedigree identifier. Population: 30 in 61, 9 finer (9/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26A6, PCGS# 8956)
