1873 Liberty Head Double Eagle. Open 3. MS-63 (PCGS). CAC. Frosty rose-gold surfaces with a sharp strike to virtually all design elements. With 1,500 to 2,500 or more examples extant, the 1873 Open 3 is one of the most readily obtainable issues of its design type in Mint State. Many of the Uncirculated pieces were repatriated from foreign bank hoards in the decades following World War Two. This is still a conditionally challenging issue, however, the vast majority of examples confined to the MS-60 to MS-62 grade range. A premium quality survivor at the MS-63 level, the coin offered here is a delight to behold and would do nicely in a Mint State type set. From the Fairmont Collection.
