Exceptional 1877-S Double Eagle, MS63
1877-S $20 MS63 PCGS. The 1877-S double eagle was shipped to
European and South American countries in large quantities shortly
after it was produced. Most of the returning examples are in the
Extremely Fine to lower Mint State levels and are heavily abraded.
The issue becomes rare in MS63, the condition of the coin in this
lot, and is virtually unobtainable any finer.
A Notable Condition Rarity
Lustrous yellow-gold surfaces are imbued with mint-green, orange, and lilac and exhibit sharply struck design features, including the obverse stars that are often weak on surviving examples. Scattered minute marks and grazes are much less extensive and severe than ordinarily encountered. Population: 21 in 63, 3 finer (11/09).
