This formerly overlooked Civil War double eagle is now recognized as being a scarce issue in circulated grades and a rare one in Uncirculated. This choice "slider" example shows attractive even light to medium green-gold color with slight accents of rose. The surfaces are clean with the exception of a few contact marks below the eye of Liberty and the wear is limited to a touch of friction on the high spots of the obverse.
