    Prooflike 1876-S Double Eagle

    1876-S $20 Double Eagle MS 63 Prooflike SEGS. This example's mirrored surfaces are easily its most captivating feature. The bold strike and orange-gold color are also worthy of praise, but the grade-limiting abrasions include a reeding mark over and below Liberty's chin. The '76-S is remarkably elusive at the present level despite an original mintage of more than 1.5 million pieces.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26AX, PCGS# 8978)

    Weight: 33.44 grams
