    1889-S Double Eagle, MS62+ Prooflike
    Sole Prooflike Example, CAC Endorsed

    1889-S $20 MS62+ Prooflike PCGS. CAC. More than 300 Saddle Ridge Hoard 1889-S twenties were recovered, but none of them with designated Prooflike surfaces. This Plus-graded and CAC-endorsed example remains the sole prooflike 1889-S at PCGS, with a razor-sharp strike and vivid rich-gold color on both sides. Light field abrasions exist -- no surprise there -- to determine the MS62+ grade, yet the eye appeal is outstanding the flash easily outdistances any non-prooflike rivals. Population: 1 in 62 (1 in 62+) Prooflike, 0 finer (1/20). (NGC ID# BEHE, Variety PCGS# 99012, Base PCGS# 79012)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
