1861 $20 Liberty Double Eagle PCGS AU58+



1861 $20 Liberty Type 1 Double Eagle PCGS AU58+. This pleasing near-Mint specimen represents the classic type issue in the Type One double eagle series, although the 1857-S and 1865-S are more plentiful in the modern, post-treasure numismatic era. Before the treasure discoveries of the 1990s, the 1861 was the common issue. This example has a hint of green on its light yellow surfaces with virtually full luster and a trivial mark under the eye of Liberty.
