Overdate 1853/2 Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS60

Rare Unc.

While the status of the 1853/2 remains controversial, collectors flock to the variety as the only potential overdate of the series. An anomaly in the lower loop of 3 gets most of the attention, and re-punching above the base of 1 is clearly present. A squarish die lump beneath R in LIBERTY is diagnostic of the variety. The PCGS population is just 3 with 11 higher, the latter figure being comprised solely of MS61 grade examples.

1859 Liberty Eagle NGC MS60

Flashy, Glowing Mint State

This date saw a relatively small mintage of 16,013 pieces. Few examples were saved by contemporary collectors, as collecting high denomination gold coins was too expensive for the average collector in the 19th century. The coins circulated widely in the channels of commerce, suffering considerable attrition over the years, and the majority of survivors are in Extremely Fine and About Uncirculated grades today. This particular example boasts semi-prooflike surfaces and a wonderful overall appearance, which can’t be captured in our images. The NGC population is just 3 with 8 higher.

1866-S No Motto Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS60

One of THE Finest

The Act of March 3, 1865 specified in part, that the motto should be included on all gold coins larger than the three dollar piece. Reverse dies for the $20’s were  prepared, containing the new motto at the Philadelphia Mint, but didn’t reach the S.F. Mint until at least March of 1866. Anxious to begin coinage, the Mint began production, using two of the old reverse dies without the motto. In a scenario reminiscent of the earlier 1861-S Paquet Reverse coins, an estimated  120,000 No Motto double eagles were produced and released into circulation before the new dies arrived. Collecting $20’s only became popular in this country in the late 1930s, after President Roosevelt’s Gold Recall of 1933 made it illegal for U.S. citizens to own large amounts of gold in other forms. By then, the 1866-S No Motto twenties had been circulating for decades, and attrition had taken a severe toll. Today, the issue is scarce-to-rare in all grades. The PCGS population is a mere 2 with 5 higher – none finer than MS62.

1879-CC Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS60

This 79-CC Rarity is no Dollar!

The 1879-CC Liberty double eagle is an elusive issue, from a small mintage of 10,708 pieces (the second-lowest double eagle mintage of the 1870s from the mint in Carson City). Traditionally, the 1879-CC was thought to be even more elusive than it is today, but a small hoard of examples surfaced in the 1990’s, to augment the meager supply. Most of the hoard coins were in the XF-AU grade range, so the issue remains very rare in Mint State condition. The NGC population is only 5 with 6 higher.

1854 Kellogg & Co. $20 NGC MS60

Rare Mint State

John Grover Kellogg was one of the most respected assayers and coiners in San Francisco during the Gold Rush. He was involved in many of the preeminent refining operations of the period, partnering with the likes of John Moffat, G.F. Richter, and Augustus Humbert from 1849 through 1860. In 1854, these twenty dollar gold pieces served a vital role in commerce during the time between the closure of the United State Assay Office and the full operation of the San Francisco Mint, which opened in April of that year. As is the case with many of our offerings, this coin is somewhat lighter and brighter than seen in our images. The NGC population is just 9 with 17 graded higher.

1862-S Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS60

Tough Unc. Civil War $20 Lib.

Most of the S-Mint double eagles coined in 1862 entered circulation, and today the average certified grade is just below AU50. The S.S. Brother Jonathan and S.S. Republic treasure recoveries contributed 190 examples to the numismatic marketplace. Despite the appearance of those coins in the last two decades, this issue us still quite rare in uncirculated grades. The one offered here is noticeably more lustrous and attractive than seen in our images. The current NGC population stands at 11 with 36 higher.

1855 Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS60

Rare Mint State

The year 1855 saw heavy double eagle production on both coasts, with 364,666 pieces struck at Philadelphia and nearly 880,000 coins minted at San Francisco. Do not be misled by those figures! The Philadelphia coins are much scarcer than their S-mint counterparts across all grade levels, and Mint State representatives are quite rare. In fact, PCGS and NGC combined have graded fewer than 50 pieces in all uncirculated grades.

1879-S Liberty Double Eagles PCGS MS60

A Half Dozen

From a mintage of 1.2 million pieces, the 1879-S Liberty double eagle was heavily circulated at the time of issue and many examples were used to settle large accounts in foreign trade. Many coins have been repatriated from overseas holdings in recent years, but most examples seen have excessive bag-marks from rough storage and transport. Mint State coins are scarce in today’s market and high-grade examples are rare. 

                                                                                                                                      We have six coins available…
