Description

1870 Liberty Double Eagle, MS61
Underrated Type Two Twenty

1870 $20 MS61 NGC. CAC. From a fairly modest mintage of 155,150 pieces, the 1870 Liberty double eagle is a scarce date in the series, and few high-quality specimens were saved by contemporary collectors. Like most Type Two twenties, most of the surviving population is in circulated grades, and Mint State examples, like the present coin, are rare. This impressive MS61 specimen exhibits sharply detailed design elements and vibrant mint luster radiates from both sides. The pleasing peach-gold surfaces are lightly marked for the grade and overall eye appeal is unexpectedly strong. Census: 16 in 61, 18 finer (6/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26A7, PCGS# 8957)

Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the results of the auction and I truly believe it was Jill’s efforts in promoting and displaying the piece that brought in the extra value.
