    1897-S Double Eagle, Fully Struck Gem
    Fantastic Quality

    1897-S $20 MS65 NGC. CAC. The quality of this 1897-S double eagle, both visual and technical, is absolutely fantastic. At first glance, the dearth of overt field abrasions certainly stands out as a hallmark of this high-end Gem. A single tick between stars 1 and 2 serves as one of the few identifying marks. The obverse also shows a couple of small coppery alloy spots, while the overall coloration is an appealing shade of orange-gold. Finally, the design elements are completely brought-up without a trace of softness. Worth a premium bid in our opinion. Census: 25 in 65 (1 in 65+), 1 finer. CAC: 1 in 65, 1 finer (11/19).
    From The "So Cal" Collection. (Registry values: N4719)
