1860 $20.00 PCGS AU58

The 1860 double eagle sells for a reasonably small premium over the 1861 in this grade yet it is many times more scarce. And, relative scarcity aside, this "super slider" is as nice an AU58 Type One double eagle as you are going to find with great luster, lovely natural rose and orange-gold color and very pleasing surfaces which are far less abraded than normal for this issue. In fact, this piece has much better eye appeal than many Type One double eagles that are graded MS60 and MS61. A small grease stain on the reverse, located below the right scroll end, is mentioned for the sake of accuracy.
