Description:
Flashy 1870-S Double Eagle, MS61
Seldom Seen in Mint State
1870-S $20 MS61 PCGS. As is the case with many Saint-Gaudens double eagles, the 1870-S shows a similar fate: Despite a large mintage approaching 1 million pieces, most examples were "exported or destroyed," according to Garrett and Guth, who add that the issue is "very rare in Mint State." The present piece offers deep-orange gold color over surfaces that are well but not fully struck, displaying the typically seen softness on the hair curls. The fields are bright and flashy and only light abrasions appear, none worthy of singular mention. Population: 30 in 61, 3 finer (1/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26A9, PCGS# 8959)
