Stack’s Bowers Galleries is delighted to present the finest PCGS-certified 1853/‘2’ Liberty Head eagle as part of their Official Auction of the 2018 ANA World’s Fair of Money in Philadelphia this August. Graded MS-62 (PCGS), this important rarity was only recently discovered by PCGS Director of World Grading Mike Sargent as part of a submission to PCGS Paris that included otherwise unremarkable U.S. gold coinage. It now ranks among the finest examples of this scarce variety, exceeding even the incredible Hall-Simpson (AU-58+ PCGS) and Hansen (MS-61 PCGS) specimens.
