    1893 Liberty Double Eagle, Rare and Significant Proof Format

    1893 $20 PR60 NGC. This is a late date Liberty Double Eagle that rarely surfaces in proof format. No more than 15 examples are believed extant from an original delivery of 59 coins, only seven of which have been graded by NGC and PCGS in all grades (1/03). An unmistakable specimen striking, both sides are deeply mirrored in the fields with razor sharp devices that are appreciably contrasted. The otherwise orange-gold color appears to go black in the fields as the surfaces rotate away from a light source. Both sides are somewhat scuffy with a couple of moderate contact marks on the obverse. (NGC ID# 26EE, PCGS# 9109)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
