The Only Type 3 O-Mint Double Eagle

The 1879-O is famous for two reasons: it is the only O-mint type 3 double eagle and boasts a tiny mintage of 2,235 coins of which very few survive. This VF35 example is a great value for the collector looking for this coveted rarity. Very few of these come to market so this is a rare opportunity. The reverse of this coin is XF45 which leads us to believe that the perceived wear on the obverse is more likely due to strike than circulation.
