Description:
1870-S Double Eagle, AU58
Appealing, Conditionally Scarce Example
1870-S $20 AU58 NGC. Most of the 982,000 coins from this issue were exported or destroyed, and Uncirculated examples are rare. Most of those certified in Mint State by NGC and PCGS are rated between MS60 and MS62, with just one NGC coin graded at MS63. This example represents the highest affordable grade for the average collector. The design motifs are well-struck and the fields are heavily prooflike. Moderately abraded and lightly worn on the high-points, this is a pleasing near-Mint example that should generate interest from multiple bidders at the auction sale.
From The Christopher Bently Nob Hill Collection.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 26A9, PCGS# 8959)
