Description

1885-S Double Eagle, MS63
Seldom Seen Finer

1885-S $20 MS63 PCGS. This issue is only marginally elusive in MS63, but numerically finer coins are rarely seen, and only one piece has been deemed worthy of a Gem grade (6/14). Additionally, Garrett and Guth note that "The population numbers for MS63 examples are probably inflated greatly by resubmissions. The 1885-S issue jumps rapidly in price at all levels of Mint State." This representative displays softly frosted green-gold luster over each side, with well-struck devices and a lack of any particularly bothersome surface abrasions. PCGS has graded 34 numerically finer representatives (6/14).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 28ZH, PCGS# 9005)
