Description

    1880 Liberty Double Eagle, MS61
    Partially Prooflike Surfaces

    1880 $20 MS61 NGC. Mintage of double eagles was sharply reduced at the Philadelphia Mint in 1880 with only 51,420 business-strike examples struck. Accordingly, the date is scarce in all grades and rare in Mint State. This attractive MS61 specimen features well-detailed design elements and partially prooflike lemon-yellow surfaces that show the expected number of minor contact marks for the grade. Census: 25 in 61, 8 finer (4/13).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26BA, PCGS# 8992)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The staff at Heritage are amazing to work with. My wife and I were given the "red carpet treatment" from the moment we walked in. We felt safe and secure the moment we arrived.
