Description

Condition Rarity 1870-S Double Eagle, MS62

1870-S $20 MS62 NGC. The 1870-S twenty dollar was produced in large numbers approaching 1 million pieces, many of which were exported or destroyed. Surviving coins are mostly in Very Fine to About Uncirculated grades. Uncirculated examples are scarce in MS60 and MS61 and extremely rare any finer. Only one coin has been graded finer than MS62, an NGC Select specimen.

The yellow-gold surfaces of this MS62 example are imbued with whispers of reddish-apricot. The design elements are generally well struck, save for the usually seen softness in portions of Liberty's hair. A few scattered light marks are in concert with the designated grade. Census: 9 in 62, 1 finer (3/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26A9, PCGS# 8959)
