Proof 1897 Double Eagle, An Underrated Rarity

1897 $20 PR 63 PCGS. Boldly cameoed, the surfaces are bathed in deeply set, orange-gold patina. Suggestions of green-gold color are also evident at certain angles. The normal Select double eagle would reveal at least a few mentionable hairlines or contact marks, but this coin is free of singularly bothersome blemishes. In fact, the eye appeal alone is strong enough to warrant consideration at the Choice grade level. Mint records indicate that 86 proof double eagles were delivered in 1897, and survivors are rarer than those of the 1896 issue (128 proofs produced). (NGC ID# 26EJ, PCGS# 9113)
