Description:
Important Mint State 1881 Double Eagle
1881 MS 60 PCGS. The 1881 twenty is a long recognized, low-mintage (2,199 pieces) rarity, the first in a string of seven briefly minted dates from the Philadelphia mint. Virtually all known survivors, of which there are two dozen at most, are in the XF to AU range. Even proofs, of which 61 coins were struck, are more likely to be located than an AU business strike. The surfaces on this important example show no break in the original mint luster from commerce, just numerous small to medium sized abrasions over both sides from contact with other coins. Possibly the finest known business strike 1881 double eagle, this prized item from the Wisconsin Collection is currently the only mint state example certified by PCGS (4/97). (NGC ID# 26BC, PCGS# 8994)
