    Pittman's Choice Proof Double Eagle

    1902 $20 PR64 PCGS. Ex: Pittman. This meticulously struck sunrise-gold near-Gem exhibits flashy mirrored fields and has impressive eye appeal. A few wisps of milky gray patina are noted on the reverse, above the I in PLURIBUS and the field near the arrowheads, but there is scant evidence of the wispy hairlines that often accompany proof gold coins. Only 114 proofs were struck, and far fewer than the quantity survive in unimpaired grades. Although the PCGS population for the PR64 grade is 22 pieces, it is very likely that most of that population reflects resubmissions from a dealer or two attempting to achieve the elusive PCGS PR65 grade, which only a solitary example has attained.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
