Description

Deeply Mirrored 1901 Proof Double Eagle

1901 PR 64 PCGS. Only 96 proof double eagles were struck in 1901, and of that number attrition has taken a rather high toll over the decades. Today it is estimated that only 36-40 still remain in all grades, and a fair number are impaired in some way. This is an attractive specimen that shows illimitible depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields, and also displays a surprising amount of frost on the devices, yielding a moderate two-toned cameo effect. A few small contact marks limit the grade but do little to inhibit the overall visual appeal of this important proof. Population: 7 in 64, only 1 finer (5/96). (NGC ID# 26EN, PCGS# 9117)
