    1891 Eagle, CAC-Endorsed MS64+
    Condition Census Specimen

    1891 $10 MS64+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson-Hall. The 1891 is common in grades through MS63, but it is a rare issue in MS64, and it is currently unknown finer at PCGS (NGC has graded a single piece in MS65). PCGS has certified just five examples in MS64, including this MS64+ specimen (12/19). The two most recent sales occurred in 2019 when examples brought $10,200 in July and $10,250 in February. It should be noted that neither of these pieces was CAC approved and it is likely that the Jacobson coin is a strong candidate for finest-known for the issue.

    This Plus-graded Choice specimen offers sharply detailed design elements and well-preserved apricot-gold surfaces that radiate vibrant mint luster from both sides. Overall visual appeal is terrific. Population: 5 in 64 (1 in 64+), 0 finer (1/20).
    From The Harvey B. Jacobson, Jr. Collection of Liberty Eagles. (Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 266T, PCGS# 8719)
