    Magnificent Gem Proof 1899 Double Eagle

    1899 $20 PR65 PCGS. Truly awe-inspiring quality, this is a solidly graded Gem from a modest production of 84 proofs, of which perhaps fewer than ten survivors qualify at the present grade level. The beautiful orange-gold mirror surfaces appear to be technically finer than the Greenwich Collection specimen which was certified PCGS PR65 Cameo and sold for over $54,000 in our 2004 Pittsburgh Sale. Both sides of this first generation PCGS representative, certified before the grading services initiated the cameo and deep cameo designations, are lightly patinated in splendid orange-gold color and offer moderate contrast between the deep, glassy fields and the major design elements. Look for unflagging interest in this important Gem Proof Liberty Twenty. Population: 5 in 65, 1 finer (12/04).
    From The Gold Rush Collection.(#9115) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26EL, PCGS# 9115)
