Description

MS62 1878 Double Eagle
Semiprooflike Obverse
Quadrupled Die Reverse

1878 $20 MS62 NGC. Breen-7270. The obverse is semiprooflike, likely the reason for the Star designation. The reverse exhibits vibrant cartwheel luster and is struck from a quadrupled die, with the spread from multiple hubbings perhaps clearest on the feet of the F in OF. The variety is undesignated on the NGC insert. The reverse is well-preserved, and the obverse is much less abraded than the MS62 grade suggests. Census: 8 in 62 , none finer with a Star designation (11/11).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 26B3, PCGS# 8985)
