    1861 Double Eagle, MS64
    Notable Condition Rarity
    Semiprooflike and Original

    1861 $20 MS64 NGC. The deepness of the rich, medium gold color and the smooth reflectivity of the semiprooflike fields suggest this is a non-seawater, original near-Gem double eagle. Rare as such, we note hundreds of 1861 twenties were brought up from the S.S. Republic -- but most of those graded AU58 through MS62.

    The current coin is sharp, lustrous, and attractive, with a bold strike only a few minor abrasions distributed across the glittering, hard surfaces. A huge mintage of more than 2.9 million pieces yielded few coins that were saved by collectors, and like all Type One double eagles the issue is undeniably rare in high Mint State grades. Census: 19 in 64, 7 finer (6/14).
    From The Charles G. Wright Family Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 269G, PCGS# 8932)
