1863-S Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS62

Rare Unc. S-Mint Civil War $20

Gold coins were hoarded in the East during the Civil War due to the uncertain outcome of that lengthy event. Meanwhile, on the West coast, gold coins circulated at par due to the California public’s distrust of paper money. As a result, the typical surviving S-Mint double eagle is well circulated, although an exception exists for the amazing treasure coins of the S.S. Republic and the S.S. Brother Jonathan. The PCGS population is only 17 with 10 higher. This one is pleasing in terms of color and overall appearance.

1857-S S.S. Central America $20 Liberty PCGS MS65

“Head Turner”/“Turned Head”

The discovery of the thousands of Type One twenties in mint condition from the salvage of the S.S. Central America in the late 1980s proved to be a boon for collectors since this first design type was rarely encountered in Uncirculated grades before these pieces entered the market. One characteristic common to all of these salvaged twenties is the extraordinary mint luster. Because the coins lay undisturbed more than two miles below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean they were unaffected by the abrasive effects of salt water that normally subdues the luster on gold coins found on ship wrecks found in more shallow waters.

1859 Liberty Double Eagle PCGS AU55

A 59 20 in 55

The 1859 Liberty double eagle claims one of the lowest business-strike mintages of any Type One double eagle from the Philadelphia Mint, at a meager 43,597 pieces. The small business-strike production was largely ignored by contemporary numismatists and few high-quality pieces were preserved for posterity. The 1859 is an elusive issue in all grades today, and most survivors grade in the VF-XF range. This representative is considerably brighter and more lustrous in hand. Not surprisingly, the PCGS population stands at just 18 with 24 higher.

1857-S S.S.C.A. Liberty Double Eagles PCGS MS63 and MS65

A Pair of 5’s and a 3

The 1857-S Liberty double eagle was a rare issue in high grade before the recovery of the treasure from the S.S. Central America. Fortunately for present-day collectors, more than 5,000 examples were discovered in that famous shipwreck find, making the 1857-S the most available Type One double eagle in high grade, and the favorite choice of type collectors.

1860 Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS62

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.

1857-O Liberty Double Eagle NGC AU55

Flashy, Highly Lustrous

This coin looks much better in person than seen in our images – it’s considerably flashier, more lustrous and appealing in-hand! Double eagle production at the New Orleans Mint rebounded out of the small four-figure range in 1857, reaching 30,000 pieces. However, this issue circulated extensively and its modern-day availability is limited. Circulated pieces are occasionally seen, but the finer AU-level coins are in high demand since only a few Mint State pieces exist. Listed at $24,200, $24,200 and $26,500 in the CDN CPG, the NGC price guide and Trends, respectively.
