    Sharp, Lustrous 1861-O Double Eagle, AU58

    1861-O $20 AU58 NGC. The 1861-O is a scarce Type One double eagle that has a certain mystique lacking from other dates. Most of the mintage was struck either under the auspices of the State of Louisiana or the Confederacy. It is impossible to know with certainty which coins are which, but many people believe the coins that show weakness at the base of the date are the CSA pieces. Most surviving examples are VF or XF, with AU pieces elusive. The strike is excellent, and the ample luster is prooflike. As expected, the surfaces are lightly abraded, although to a degree much less than are most early AU58 double eagles. On the reverse, there are a few minute planchet flaws near the S in STATES. Census: 10 in 58, 5 finer (12/07).

    HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
