$20 Liberty Double Eagles continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
9156   Image$20.00 1876 (#8976).

MS62 PCGS (# 21503892)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $2,750

ESTIMATE: $1,800

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

CONDITION NOTES: Orange-gold semi-reflective luster, strong strike with well-defined obverse details, some weakness in the motto, a minimal amount of friction marks and none distracting, very strong MS62

COMMENTS: 583,860 Double Eagles were minted in the Centennial year 1876 at the Centennial city Philadelphia Mint. The number of 1876 Double Eagles in Mint State 62 and higher is relatively low compared with the 1876-S. This is a choice MS62 piece from the last year of the Type II Double Eagle. (Image) (image2)

MS62 PCGS (# 5777188)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $3,340

ESTIMATE: $2,200

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

CONDITION NOTES: Beautiful rose-gold luster with hints of crimson in places, magnificently detailed strike, minor abrasion marks except for one in field behind bust, appears better than its MS62 grade

COMMENTS: In 1877 the Double Eagle design was modified, most notably by spelling out Twenty Dollars.” 397,650 of the new Type III Double Eagles were minted for circulation at Philadelphia. The majority of repatriated Mint State pieces from European banks are graded 60 or 61. This MS62 piece is considerably scarcer. (Image) (image2)

MS61 NGC (# 3770830002)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $2,330

ESTIMATE: $1,600

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

CONDITION NOTES: Bright semi-reflective rose-gold luster, extraordinarily detailed strike with Liberty's curls sharply defined, scattered shallow abrasion marks, one slightly deeper in the hair at back of head noted only to emphasize how negligible they are, a strong MS61

COMMENTS: Hundreds of the 1878 Double Eagle can be found in Mint State grades, thanks to the return of large quantities from Europe. Nonetheless, it is an ideal Type III for the collector who wants to obtain a choice piece at a small premium over melt. (Image) (image2)

MS62 PCGS (# 38220229)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $3,880

ESTIMATE: $2,500

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,000

CONDITION NOTES: Honey-gold with some dark patina on high points, very detailed strike, scattered but mostly shallow abrasion marks, one slightly deeper mark on cheek, but still a well-qualified MS62 piece

COMMENTS: The ubiquitous 1878-S Double Eagle from European bank hoards can be found in Mint State grades 60 and 61, but the population drops precipitously from 62 and up. This MS62 is one of the more desirable pieces. (Image) (image2)

MS61 NGC (# 5230459003)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $2,560

ESTIMATE: $1,600

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

CONDITION NOTES: Lovely color which reflects some original rose luster when angled in light, sharp details, couple discolored spots on back, a few marks on face, nice eye appeal

COMMENTS: From a mintage of 207,600, the total number of graded Philadelphia Mint 1879 Double Eagles is much lower than for other years, thus it is safe to assume that the quantity repatriated from Europe was smaller -- in Mint State there are roughly 500 graded by PCGS and 280 by NGC.

MS61 PCGS (# 25681291)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $3,750

ESTIMATE: $2,500

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,000

CONDITION NOTES: Gorgeous orange-gold with crimson hue of original luster visible in angled light, remarkably sharp detail, very minor marks in fields with one slightly deeper mark to the left of forehead -- frankly this seems worthy of a grade higher than MS61

COMMENTS: Despite a large quantity minted at San Francisco in 1879 (more than 1.2 million), and the return of pieces from Europe, the 1879-S Type III Double Eagle is scarce in grades of MS61 or 62, and it is rare above that. The highest NGC grade is 62 (54 pieces) and the highest PCGS grade is 64 and 64+ (one each). In our opinion, this is a very strong 61, which could possibly notch up a grade. (Image) (image2)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $3,750

ESTIMATE: $2,500

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,000

CONDITION NOTES: Brilliant gold with some original crimson luster in protected areas and slightly dark patina on high points, friction marks, an attractive 1879-S

COMMENTS: Despite a large quantity minted at San Francisco in 1879 (more than 1.2 million), and the return of pieces from Europe, the 1879-S Type III Double Eagle is scarce in grades of MS61 or 62, and it is rare above that. The highest NGC grade is 62 (54 pieces) and the highest PCGS grade is 64 and 64+ (one each). This MS61 serves as a useful comparison piece to the PCGS-graded MS61 offered in the previous lot.

ESTIMATE: $2,500

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,000

CONDITION NOTES: Gorgeous semi-reflective gold with original crimson luster in protected areas, very minor marks, exceptionally choice for its MS61 grade

COMMENTS: 836,000 Double Eagles were minted at San Francisco in 1880. The 1880-S is considerably scarcer in Mint State than other late San Francisco Double Eagles. In our opinion, this piece is very conservatively graded at MS61, and could possibly notch up to 62. (Image) (image2)
