EXCEPTIONAL CAC APPROVED COLLECTOR GRADE 1858-O DOUBLE EAGLE

The date which the 1858-O compares most favorably to in the Type One series is the 1857-O, both in terms of overall and high grade rarity. There are fewer than 300 1858-O double eagles known and only a handful of the pieces in EF holders are original and choice.

This is a textbook coin for the grade with good overall detail and exceptional deep, rich green-god color which shades to orange-gold in the recesses. An area of scuffs in the upper left obverse field limits the grade but I can't recall having seen more than a small handful of collector grade 1858-O double eagles which had this look.

No EF40 1858-O has sold at auction since the beginning of 2010. Two PCGS EF45's have sold at auction in the last three plus years (both lacked CAC approval) and these realized $9,694 in 2014 and $10,058 in 2013.

Higher grade 1858-O double eagles are very scarce and very expensive, making this choice coin very desirable for the specialist with a more limited budget.

CAC has approved this 1 coin in EF40 with 9 finer.
