    1866 Double Eagle, FS-801, AU58
    Doubled Motto, Mint State Appearance

    1866 $20 Doubled Motto, FS-801, AU58 PCGS. CAC. Simply put, this first-year Motto double eagle looks Mint State. It has few major abrasions scattered over light honey-gold surfaces. Frosty luster cascades over each side. The devices are strongly rendered, and Liberty's portrait partially stands out against the surrounding fields. Whatever trace of friction prevented an Uncirculated assessment is practically indiscernible. The motto shows clear doubling, especially on IN. A very scarce issue in higher grades despite a healthy mintage of nearly 700,000 coins.

    Coin Index Numbers: (Variety PCGS# 145733, Base PCGS# 8949)
