Description

Exceptional 1877-S Double Eagle, MS63
A Notable Condition Rarity

1877-S $20 MS63 PCGS. The 1877-S double eagle was shipped to European and South American countries in large quantities shortly after it was produced. Most of the returning examples are in the Extremely Fine to lower Mint State levels and are heavily abraded. The issue becomes rare in MS63, the condition of the coin in this lot, and is virtually unobtainable any finer.
Lustrous yellow-gold surfaces are imbued with mint-green, orange, and lilac and exhibit sharply struck design features, including the obverse stars that are often weak on surviving examples. Scattered minute marks and grazes are much less extensive and severe than ordinarily encountered. Population: 21 in 63, 3 finer (11/09).
From The Atherton Family Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 254B, PCGS# 8984)
