    1890-S Double Eagle, Exceptional Near-Gem Quality

    1890-S $20 MS64 NGC. The 1890-S is scarcer than the 1888-S and the 1889-S, especially in MS63 and higher grades. In MS64, this is a rare issue and only one example, graded MS65 by NGC, has been graded higher as of November 2001.
    We offered a PCGS MS64 in our September 1999 sale where it realized $6,900. Sharply struck, this original piece has subtle gradations of rose-gold and lilac color on each side with sparkling mint luster. Minimally abraded also.
    High grade Type Three San Francisco double eagles were actively promoted during 1999 and 2000 and prices rose substantially. They have currently fallen somewhat and can now be purchased for more reasonable levels. If you have considered putting together a set of high grade coins from this mint, they are not being heavily promoted at the moment and as such are excellent values at current levels. (NGC ID# 26BZ, PCGS# 9015)
