1884-S $20 MS64 PCGS....
Enchanting Choice 1884-S Double Eagle1884-S $20 MS64 PCGS. Despite a plentiful mintage for the issue of 916,000 business strikes, like so many Type Three Liberty double eagles--especially S-mint issues--the 1884-S is common in lower grades up to and including MS62, but rare in MS63 and higher. Indeed, this is one of only 17 examples so graded at PCGS, with only one finer (6/08).
Regardless of the numerical grade, this piece is clearly head and shoulders above most survivors of this series, with its bold combination of sharp strike, pristine surfaces, potent luster, and beautiful apricot-gold center with greenish-gold at the borders. One hesitates to call attention to the minor flaws that appear under a glass, as they are completely undistracting.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26BL, PCGS# 9002)
