    1874 Liberty Double Eagle, MS62
    Rare Any Finer

    1874 $20 MS62 PCGS. CAC. The 1874 double eagle claims a moderate Philadelphia Mint production of 366,780 pieces. The issue is not difficult to locate in grades from VF through AU, but Mint State coins are elusive and most Uncirculated examples grade no better than MS61. The 1874 is definitely scarce in MS62 condition and finer coins are rare. Demand for all Type Two double eagles is quite strong in today's market, making high-grade specimens, like the present coin, particularly desirable.

    This attractive MS62 specimen offers vivid orange-gold surfaces with the expected number of minor contact marks for the grade. The design elements are sharply detailed and vibrant mint luster adds to the outstanding eye appeal. Population: 50 in 62 (1 in 62+), 9 finer. CAC: 7 in 62, 0 finer (1/19).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 26AN, PCGS# 8970)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
