Choice 1896 Proof Double Eagle With Exceptional Eye Appeal

1896 $20 PR 64 PCGS. With an extant population of 30-35 coins, the 1896 is the most easily obtainable proof double eagle produced in the 19th century. At first glance, this coin has the look of a PR 65, if not a PR 66 grade. There are no noticeable hairlines, and the fields are deeply reflective despite light haziness on the reverse. The frosty, sharply struck devices provide a pleasing cameo contrast, and the deeply set, orange-gold color is indicative of originality. We do, however, note a small, relatively inconspicuous pinscratch in the obverse field between stars 4 and 5. (NGC ID# 26EH, PCGS# 9112)
