Gold Piece minted in San Francisco. This coin has original mint luster, and shows the classic cartwheel effect--great eye appeal! The wear on Liberty's cheek is photographed in side-light to exhibit the typical wear of this double-eagle, but does not affect the grade.
It is a true piece of history, and has been given one of the higher grades, Mint State-64, by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, one of the two top grading services (NGC & PCGS), in the rare coin business. This date, with the "S" mintmark, is a scarcer coin than most. The NGC certification number is: 3172627-007. Two of the close-up photos are taken in extra light to show the details.
