    Choice Mint State 1893 Type Three Liberty

    1893 $20 MS64 NGC. A delightful near-Gem example of this late-19th century emission, one with a moderate mintage by Philadelphia Mint standards of 344,200 pieces. The mellow orange-gold surfaces show a noteworthy lack of mentionable abrasions, and radiant cartwheel luster enlivens each side. In Type Three III Double Eagles: A Numismatic History and Analysis by Michael Fuljenz and Douglas Winter, the authors note that "of all the common Philadelphia issues from the 1890's, the 1893 is the most difficult to locate with choice surfaces." Census: 48 in 64, 3 finer (6/07).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26C8, PCGS# 9022)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
