    Description

    1911 Double Eagle, MS65
    Warm Peach-Gold Surfaces
    Blatantly High-End

    1911 $20 MS65 PCGS. CAC. Most 1911 double eagles were shipped to Europe in the years following their production. Those that have been repatriated are most often seen in MS63 and MS64 grades. According to Roger Burdette, "The small quantity of high-quality coins likely came from pieces paid out by the Philadelphia Mint Cashier and one or two bags that were relatively untouched after being received outside of the United States."

    This is one of those high-end representatives. Warm peach-gold surfaces radiate vibrant mint frost from each side. The obverse appears virtually pristine, and trivial chatter is confined to the lower reverse. Eye appeal is excellent. Fully struck throughout. Population: 65 in 65 (13 in 65+), 19 finer. CAC: 14 in 65, 5 finer (8/20).
    From The James Dines "Original Goldbug" Collection. (Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26FJ, PCGS# 9157)

    Weight: 33.44 grams
