    1872 Liberty Double Eagle
    Luminous Surfaces, Unc Sharpness

    1872 $20 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Despite a mintage in excess of 250,000 pieces, the 1872 double eagle is scarce in Mint State condition, and most such pieces are heavily abraded, grading no finer than MS61. This example reveals few noticeable abrasions and displays strong, honey-gold luster. Some faint hairlines in the fields, primarily on the obverse, suggest light cleaning, though the eye appeal is not overly affected.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26AD, PCGS# 8963)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
