$20 Liberty Double Eagles continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
9134   Image$20.00 1861 (#8932).

XF45 NGC (# 1924688020) CAC

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $2,340

ESTIMATE: $1,600

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

CONDITION NOTES: Beautiful orange gold with hints of original crimson luster in protected areas, wear on high points, but minimal marks and overall wonderful eye appeal, a very stong XF45 with CAC confirmation

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)

MIN. BID W/O BP: $1,600

CONDITION NOTES: Beautiful honey-gold luster and sharp strike with minimal wear, a few marks on Liberty bring the grade down, but eye appeal is excellent

COMMENTS: The 1862-S Double Eagle is now more available, thanks to the European bank hoards and pieces recovered from the S.S. Brother Jonathan and S.S. Republic, most in EF or AU grade. (Image) (image2)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $2,750

ESTIMATE: $1,800

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

CONDITION NOTES: Yellow gold, detailed strike with minimal wear, a fair number of abrasion marks including a hairline across the chin, yet overall an attractive piece

COMMENTS: 966,570 of this Civil War era Double Eagle were minted at San Francisco and circulated in the West. Once rarely seen in the collector market, the pieces salvaged from shipwrecks have made the 1862-S more available, but it remains a desirable and historic Double Eagle. (Image) (image2)

ESTIMATE: $2,000

MIN. BID W/O BP: $1,600

CONDITION NOTES: Beautiful orange-gold with hints of original crimson luster in protected areas, modest wear, minor abrasion marks mostly confined to slight scratches in fields, from the Granite Lady Hoard (PCGS)

COMMENTS: 793,660 Double Eagles were minted at San Francisco for circulation in 1864. This Civil War era Type I Double Eagle was a great rarity until quantities were salvaged from the wrecks of the S.S. Brother Jonathan and S.S. Republic. A scarce coin in About Uncirculated or Mint State -- from the Granite Lady Hoard (PCGS). (Image) (image2)

XF45 NGC (# 4518647005)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $2,310

ESTIMATE: $1,600

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

CONDITION NOTES: Greenish gold, very minimal wear and strong strike, minor abrasion marks including a mark on cheek, this appears far better than its XF45 grade

COMMENTS: 1,042,500 Double Eagles were minted at San Francisco in 1865, the last year of the Civil War. Once a great rarity, the wreck of the S.S. Brother Jonathan yielded 600 Mint State 1865-S Double Eagles, and subsequently the S.S. Republic returned another 939 pieces to the market. Despite its availability, the historic 1865-S remains one of the most desirable Type I Double Eagles. (Image) (image2)

9140   Image$20.00 1866 S (Motto) (#8950).

AU55 NGC (# 4307897010)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $8,120

ESTIMATE: $4,500

MIN. BID W/O BP: $3,500

CONDITION NOTES: Greenish gold and sharp strike, very minor wear, most of the abrasion marks are shallow and not distracting, a choice example of the 1866-S Motto

COMMENTS: The 1866 Double Eagle was the first issue of the Reconstruction era. 842,250 of the 1866 With Motto were struck at the San Francisco Mint. Most of the pieces that survive are in VF or EF grades. In AU55, NGC reports 154 plus 3 at 55+ (145 higher). This is an extremely desirable choice AU example of the first Double Eagle inscribed In God We Trust.” (Image) (image2)

AU53 NGC (# 4496196009)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $2,340

ESTIMATE: $1,600

MIN. BID W/O BP: $1,500

CONDITION NOTES: Beautiful orange-gold satiny luster, modest wear, negligible abrasion marks (all hairline or shallow), a very strong AU53

COMMENTS: 920,750 Double Eagles were minted at San Francisco facility for circulation in 1867. About 900 pieces have been graded in About Uncirculated state at NGC, which reflects the influx of coins from Europe and other sources. Still, examples in mid-grade AU condition are desirable.

AU53 PCGS (# 36071907)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $8,120

ESTIMATE: $5,250

MIN. BID W/O BP: $4,250

CONDITION NOTES: Incredible orange-gold luster, detailed strike, minimal wear and marks limited to tiny shallow abrasion marks, a beautiful 1868 with eye appeal that goes well beyond its AU53 grade

COMMENTS: Only 98,575 Double Eagles were minted at Philadelphia in 1868, dwarfed by the high-volume production at the San Francisco Mint. Numismatists consider the 1868 to be the scarcest Type II Liberty Double Eagle from the Philadelphia Mint (Bowers). (Image) (image2)

ESTIMATE: $2,200

MIN. BID W/O BP: $1,700

CONDITION NOTES: Brilliant honey-gold luster, sharp details, a few minor marks on face, the fields are mainly clear, a strong AU58

COMMENTS: 837,500 Double Eagles were minted at San Francisco in 1868, a relatively large production total. The majority of About Uncirculated pieces have been repatriated from European bank hoards. Examples in AU58 are scarce, and Mint State pieces are very rare (Winter and Fuljenz). (Image) (image2)

AU55 NGC (# 4483923006)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $2,360

ESTIMATE: $1,600

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

CONDITION NOTES: Deep orange gold with greenish hue and some areas of dark patina, detailed strike with very negligible wear, light friction marks on cheek but overall great eye appeal

COMMENTS: 686,750 Double Eagles were minted at San Francisco for circulation in 1869. The population for AU and MS pieces is in the 500-600 range, but choice AUs are quite desirable and sell for a modest premium over melt, making these very affordable examples of a scarce San Francisco Double Eagle.
