1851 $20 PCGS MS64 * Early Grade Rarity Liberty Double Eagle *

DLRC #: 361159 // PCGS #: 8904

Wow! An exciting early double eagle with silky-smooth surfaces. Gem examples of early $20 Libs are almost unheard of (except for Shipwreck coins) and this piece is as close as you'll ever find. Housed in an older green-label PCGS holder, this is one of just 2 coins to make this grade at PCGS, with none finer.
