    1876-S Double Eagle, MS64+
    A Condition Census Specimen

    1876-S $20 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. The 1876-S double eagle, the final Type Two issue, had a substantial mintage of more than 1.5 million coins. However, many of those entered circulation, and today, the average certified grade is just 57. While PCGS and NGC have graded 28 examples, just four of those are certified as MS64+, and the two services have graded a mere five finer coins. This Choice Mint State example has a small block-style S mintmark on the reverse. The strike is bold, and the eye appeal is first rate with brilliant and frosty yellow-gold luster and pristine surfaces. A beautiful example for the connoisseur. Population: 16 in 64 (3 in 64+), 1 finer. CAC: 5 in 64, 1 finer (11/19).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26AX, PCGS# 8978)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
