    1899 Double Eagle, MS62 Prooflike
    Elusive With Prooflike Fields

    1899 $20 MS62 Prooflike PCGS. Since PCGS recently began assigning Prooflike designations to double eagles, they have so designated only six 1899 coins, including four in MS62 and none finer. By comparison, NGC has seen 23 Prooflike pieces and three Deep Prooflike coins, the finest of which grade MS63 (1/20). This PCGS coin displays a sharp strike and bright rose-gold coloration. The depth of mirroring in the fields produced a hint of cameo contrast, while scattered light abrasions determine the numeric grade. (Variety PCGS# 779047, Base PCGS# 9035)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
