Lot Description
1860 $20 MS62 PCGS. Although hardly a common date, this issue is one of the attainable Philadelphia Mint Type One Double Eagles in Mint State grade. It is much scarcer than the 1861 issue, the most plentiful of Type One twenty from this Mint. This example just misses the Condition Census for the date. It has highly lustrous and frosty yellow-gold surfaces with only a slight trace of pinkish color. The surfaces are lightly abraded, yet quite pleasing for the grade. Population: 3 in 62, 9 finer (2/05).
