An early auction appearance was in the Palace Collections of Egypt (Sotheby's, 2/1954), lot 183, where the coin was sold as part of a group lot with 35 other double eagles.
The coin offered here is sharply struck and shows minimal wear on the coronet and shield. The fields exhibit a typical number of abrasions for the grade, and touches of green and blue color enhance the top of the reverse.
