    Very Rare 1886 Double Eagle

    1886 $20 VF 35 PCGS. In terms of sharpness, this coin is at least five points higher in grade. It is a very presentable piece with relatively clean surfaces and sharp detail. This should be one of the more affordable examples of this rare issue that has been available in a while and it would make a very good addition to a middle-grade Liberty Head double eagle set.
    1,000 circulation strike 1886 double eagles were produced. Around 25-35 pieces are known today with most of these in the XF 40 to AU 50 range. Here is a coin that will bring less than a decent but not great quality 1907 High Relief double eagle, yet it is many times rarer. At current price levels, this coin seems to be an incredibly good value.
    From the David & Jeannie Cheung Collection.
