Lot Description
1874-S $20 MS62 NGC. Though it rates alongside the most available Type Two double eagle issues in circulated grades, the 1874-S becomes surprisingly challenging in Mint State, particularly MS62. The soft, pleasing luster of this well struck example enlivens yellow-gold surfaces that show alloy accents on the devices. NGC and PCGS have graded just six finer coins between them, three at each service (10/07).
