    Sumptuous 1877-S Double Eagle, MS63 Prooflike

    1877-S $20 MS63 Prooflike NGC. The issues of 1877 marked the debut of the Type Three double eagles, which had the full denomination of TWENTY DOLLARS spelled out on the reverse. As a general rule, the 1877-S is easily procured through MS62, but Select and better pieces are condition rarities. Adding Prooflike status to the list of prerequisites further narrows the available candidates.
    In fact, of the four Prooflike representatives certified by NGC, this MS63 coin is the single finest (11/07). The honey-gold and straw-yellow surfaces offer an enticing gleam, and the strike is crisp. Though the fields and portrait show a number of light abrasions, the overall visual appeal is surprisingly strong for the grade assigned.
    From The New York Eye Appeal Collection, Part Three.
