Scarce Pre-Civil War
Although the mintage for the 1860 double eagles was a healthy 577,000-plus pieces, the issue is a conditional rarity, like so many early Liberty Head twenties from all mints. A considerable number were found aboard the S.S. Republic, which sank in 1865 in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Georgia, but most of those coins were in lower Mint State grades. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth report an average certified grade of AU53, and an average auction grade just below MS60. The current PCGS population is just 14 with 15 higher. Listed at $10,900 in the CDN CPG, $11,000 in the PCGS price guide and $12,000 in Trends.
