Extremely Scarce 1881 Double Eagle AU501881 $20 AU50 PCGS. Considerable prooflike qualities are interrupted by modest circulation and are further diminished on the obverse by dusky orange and lilac patina. The flashier reverse captures the original intensity of the luster. Just 2,199 business strikes were issued in a year that saw great concentration on Half Eagle and Eagle production at the Philadelphia Mint, but very little on other gold denominations. Today, only a few dozen pieces survive in all grades, including a small handful at the Mint State level. Population: 6 in 50, 7 finer (11/04).
