Lot Description
Rich rosy orange toning over lustrous surfaces give the piece pleasant eye appeal. Close inspection reveals scattered fine bagmarks, but in the opinion of the cataloger it is perhaps debatable whether or not this coin actually shows technical&nbsp;<em>wear. </em>Faint softness of definition in the eagle's neck feathers, but well struck otherwise. Abundant luster and satisfying eye appeal. A condition rarity in this grade. The original mintage was only 17,000 pieces, and those seem to&nbsp;have been well circulated for the most part.&nbsp;PCGS has graded three examples at this level, with none in any mint state grade. Easily among the Condition Census coins of this date and a prize for anyone collecting Liberty eagles by date.<br />
