AU53 NGC (# 4308293033)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $2,470

ESTIMATE: $1,600

MIN. BID W/O BP: $1,400

CONDITION NOTES: Deep gold and sharp strike, requisite marks for AU53, but none are distracting, from the Granite Lady Hoard (NGC)

COMMENTS: The 1861 was the first Double Eagle of the Civil War period, and 2,976,453 pieces were produced, the highest mintage of any pre-1904 Double Eagle. With the suspension of gold specie payments in December 1861, hoarding of gold coins resulted in a huge number of Double Eagles being salted away. Nonetheless, or perhaps because of their availability, these historic coins remain in demand by today’s collectors. (Image) (image2)
