1872-S Liberty Head Double Eagle. MS-61 (PCGS). CAC.Fully lustrous with a bold, softly frosted finish to both sides, this lovely Mint State example also offers vivid golden-apricot color and universally bold to sharp striking detail. It is a generally smooth and well preserved coin for the issue that would fit right into the finest double eagle set. The mintage for the 1872-S double eagle amounted to 780,000 pieces. As with many issues from the era, some portion found its way into overseas banking and bullion transactions. Perhaps 250 or so Mint State coins are known today, with the preponderance of such pieces at MS-60 or slightly finer. Many of the Uncirculated 1872-S double eagles were returned to America from overseas banking sources beginning in the latter half of the 20th century. This attractive MS-61 represents a significant bidding opportunity for double eagle enthusiasts.PCGS# 8965.
