Description

Tied for Finest Known 1851-O Liberty Double Eagle
This is an exceptional New Orleans Mint double eagle that is both uncommonly well struck and exceptionally well preserved for a pre-Civil War Southern gold coin. The definition is sharp from the rims to the centers, and there are only a few well scattered abrasions that leave most areas outwardly smooth in appearance. Handsome medium orange patina and vibrant satin luster round out an impressive list of attributes for this condition rarity 1851-O twenty. Although the 1851-O double eagle has a mintage that is the highest of the 13 New Orleans Mint double eagles, these did not survive in Mint State condition. Most today are in the VF to EF range, but a nice AU can be found with patience. Mint State examples like this are an entirely different story. Only a handful exist, and the present offering is tied with the finest seen of this date and mint. A stunning example that will place any advanced collection a big step closer to completion.
Estimate: $0.00 - $0.00
