    1902 Liberty Double Eagle, PR63
    Low Total Mintage

    1902 $20 PR63 NGC. JD-1, High R.4. This numismatically significant proof issue represents the year that a new all-brilliant finish was first introduced. These brilliant proofs stand in stark contrast to their 19th century counterparts, with contrast between the fields and devices noticeably reduced through the polishing of the raised elements. The 1902 is also famous for its low business-strike production of only 31,140 coins -- the lowest of the period (1893-1907). A small run of 114 proofs supplemented that total, and John Dannreuther suggests merely 60 to 80 pieces survive.

    A partial cameo effect exists between the stars, curls, and feathers, and the fields, although it is not nearly strong enough for a formal designation. Nevertheless, eye appeal is excellent thanks in large part to the glassy mirrors and rich orange-gold color. Light hairlines are present on each side. Census: 4 in 63, 11 finer (8/20).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26EP, PCGS# 9118)
