    1903 Liberty Double Eagle, MS66
    Among the Finest Certified

    1903 $20 MS66 NGC. The 1903 Liberty double eagle claims a nominal mintage of 287,270 pieces. Like other high-denomination gold issues of the time, the 1903 was primarily used in foreign trade or as currency reserves. Beginning after World War II, a number of coins surfaced in European and Central American holdings, increasing the supply of attractive specimens in today's market. The repatriated coins are often found in Mint State condition, but they usually exhibit some surface marks from rough storage and transport. At the MS66 grade level, the 1903 is a very rare issue.

    The present coin is a remarkable Premium Gem, with sharply detailed design elements and well-preserved orange-gold surfaces that show only the most insignificant signs of contact. Vibrant mint luster radiates from both sides, adding to the outstanding eye appeal. Census: 12 in 66, 0 finer (3/20).
