CAC APPROVED CHOICE AU 1869-S DOUBLE EAGLE

The rarity profile for the 1869-S is similar to that on most of the pre-1871 Type Two San Francisco double eagles. It is common in EF40 to AU53 grades, moderately scarce in properly graded AU55 to AU58 and rare in Uncirculated.

This piece is “dark and dirty” as we at DWN like our circulated Liberty Head gold coins to be. Both sides are covered with deep green-gold overlaid with rose flashes. There are no black smudges as seen on “Euro” examples of this type and a good deal of underlying luster is seen on both sides.

The last two NGC AU55 1869-S double eagles with CAC approval sold for $3,672 and $3,408, respectively, in the 2014 Heritage ANA auction.

CAC has approved 24 in this grade with 36 finer.
