Description

MS62 1870 Double Eagle
Rare Date in Mint State

1870 $20 MS62 NGC. The 1870 double eagle, like a number of its Type Two fellows, is a confirmed condition rarity at the MS62 level and takes that state to extremes any finer; there are only six Select-or-better coins in the combined certified population (2/11). This is a particularly impressive example of the date, pale canary-gold with softly frosted central devices and solid peripheral detail. Cartwheel-lustered fields have the usual minor abrasions, as well as a handful of sharper marks that account for the grade, the most notable of which appears to the left of IN GOD WE TRUST. All things considered, though, this is a beautiful coin.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26A7, PCGS# 8957)
