1893-S Liberty Head Double Eagle. MS-64 (PCGS). CAC. CMQ.This is an attractive, fully original example with bountiful mint luster and a razor sharp strike. The 1893-S double eagle was produced to the tune of 996,175 pieces, up some 66,000 coins from the previous years figure at the San Francisco Mint. We estimate 7,500 to 10,000 or more Mint State examples of this issue are extant. Though they were slightly scarce in mid-20th century collecting circles, the importation of gold coins from abroad in later years brought back many 1893-S double eagles in lower Mint State ranges. Few are finer than MS-63, however, confirming the conditionally scarce nature of this impressive offering at the near-Gem level.PCGS# 9024. NGC ID: 26CA.CAC Stickered Population: 12; 1.
