Description

Near-Mint 1863 Double Eagle
Challenging Civil War Date

1863 $20 AU58 PCGS. The massive mintages for gold coins at Philadelphia from 1850 through 1861 came to a halt with the onset of the Civil War, rendering issues such as the 1863 double eagle low-mintage challenges for today's collectors. This is an impressive near-Mint representative, bright yellow-gold with pale green and orange overtones depending on the angle to the light. Solidly defined on the obverse stars with just a trace of rub on the well struck portrait and eagle, and scattered light abrasions are of little concern. Population: 11 in 58, 21 finer (2/11).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 269P, PCGS# 8939)

It goes without saying that after the auction when we had a chance to have dinner together and get to know each other it even made it a better experience for me. I look forward to getting more involved with Heritage in the Future.
