    1873 Liberty Twenty, MS64
    Popular Open 3 Variant

    1873 $20 Open 3 MS64 PCGS Secure. The 1873 Liberty double eagle, with an Open 3 in the date, was produced in greater numbers than its Closed 3 counterpart. In fact, the issue is probably the most available Type Two double eagle in today's market, making it a popular choice with type collectors. Of course, the coins circulated heavily at the time of issue and high-grade examples are elusive. The 1873, Open 3 is rare in MS64 condition and finer coins are virtually unobtainable.

    This attractive Choice example exhibits sharply detailed design elements and well-preserved orange-gold surfaces that show only minor signs of contact. Both sides radiate vibrant mint luster, with outstanding eye appeal. This coin should find a home in a fine collection or Registry Set. Population: 11 in 64, 1 finer (6/18).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26AL, PCGS# 8967)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
