    Description

    1861 Double Eagle, MS63
    Fully Mirrored Fields

    1861 $20 MS63 PCGS. This piece deserves a Prooflike or Deep Mirror Prooflike designation, if PCGS recognized such things among Liberty double eagles. Both sides exhibit a full strike on the rich orange-gold surfaces, with deeply mirrored fields that exhibit faint hairlines to limit the grade. The obverse of this example has a small but prominent raised die chip on the crown below the B in LIBERTY, and that should serve as a marker for those interested in die varieties.

    This gorgeous prooflike example may also appeal to collectors of proof gold, as proofs of the 1861 double eagle are extremely rare. We are only aware of one proof that has been offered for sale at auction in the last 25 years.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 269G, PCGS# 8932)
