Description:
Outstanding Gem 1897-S Double Eagle
1897-S $20 MS65 PCGS. One of several heavily repatriated S-mint double eagle issues of the late 19th century, the 1897-S is generally available in lesser Mint State grades. For the collector who seeks a more attractive example, however, the options are far more limited. Garrett and Guth observe that MS64 pieces are elusive, if slightly more available than for other San Francisco issues from the same time period.
A Gem such as the present piece, however, is an undeniable treasure. This wheat-gold example, imbued with peach and honey in the fields, offers decisive detail and strong luster with a touch of satin. The surfaces are remarkably well-preserved, and only a tiny flaw on Liberty's neck precludes an even finer designation. Population: 3 in 65, 2 finer (2/08).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26CJ, PCGS# 9032)
