1857-S $20 Liberty Earlier San Francisco Double Eagle! NGC AU55
I'm offering an attractive, lightly-circulated example of a scarce Type One Liberty Double Eagle. Although this example was not part of the hoard, many 1857 S Double Eagles were salvaged from 2 19th Century shipwrecks. There are quite a few classic US gold coins that are not often seen but are still priced not too far off their melt value. These coins will be your best bet for a double play with both the numismatic value and the bullion value of the coin. Coins with this two-faceted valuation are what I like to offer to my clients. These coins offer a good upside potential from their numismatic value in good times and upside potential with their melt value in tough times. As a result of the discovery of thousands of choice to gem examples from the S.
Central America treasure, the 1857-S has become the single most available Type One double eagle. This discovery literally kick-started the wider market for this series and today the 1857-S is desirable to collectors, investors, and history lovers alike. The coin boasts nice gold toning with some reddish accents and mint frost remaining in the protected areas.
The strike is good and the wear is minimal. This double eagle would make a very nice addition to your collection or for investment. They aren't making any more of these! The coin that is pictured is the coin you will receive. The item "1857-S $20 Liberty Earlier San Francisco Double Eagle! NGC AU55" is in sale since Tuesday, October 8, 2019.
