Description

1878 Double Eagle, MS63
Elusive So Fine

1878 $20 MS63 PCGS. As with many Type Three twenty dollar issues, the 1878 and its half-million-plus mintage is readily accessible in most circulated grades through MS62. The Select level of preservation is a completely different story. In MS63, the 1878 is scarce and rare any finer. PCGS and NGC combined have seen only 61 MS63s (some of which are undoubtedly resubmitted coins) and 12 pieces grading higher.

Reverse die doubling is visible on the bottom parts of STATES OF AMER and the tops of TWENTY DOLLARS. Honey-gold patination resides on the lustrous surfaces of this well struck twenty dollar. A few light marks, the most noticeable on Liberty's cheek, do not detract in the least. Population: 36 in 63, 8 finer (3/13).
From C.R.B.'s $20 Liberty Set.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26B3, PCGS# 8985)
