1861-S Liberty Double Eagle. AU-58 (PCGS).
Variegated tan-orange and deep rose colors compete for dominance over both sides of this sharp near-Mint survivor. A touch of light haziness to the obverse is noted for accuracy, but we are unable to locate any sizeable or otherwise singularly mentionable abrasions. Mint State examples of this date and mint are downright rare and seldom offered, and finding an attractive AU-58 like coin would make an excellent selection for the advanced date and mint collector to represent this issue.
Pedigree: From the El Dorado Collection, Part II. Earlier ex: Heritage's sale of Febuary 2005, lot 9005.
