Lot Description
1899 $20 MS65 PCGS. Lovely peach-gold, rose, and mint-green toning adorns the flashy surfaces of this well preserved Gem. Ebullient cartwheel luster shimmers through the fields on both obverse and reverse. As befits the issue, the design features display razor-sharp delineation that leaves no element weakly defined. The 1899 double eagle is a very common coin in lower Mint State grades, through MS63. The numbers fall off considerably between MS63 and MS64, however. At the Gem preservation level this date suddenly becomes very scarce, especially at PCGS where just eight pieces have been so graded, and none finer (11/06). One thing about this example seems clear: when it crosses the auction block, double eagle specialists are certain to sit up and take notice. From The Kutasi Collection.
