Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): Several substantial quantities of mint state 1867 Double Eagles were discovered in Europe in the 1960's and so the 1867 is relatively common in Unc. and is certainly one of the dates prior to 1873 most likely to be available in choice condition. These mint state "hoard" coins are characterized by attractive color (pink, green and copper) and excellent lustre. As many as several hundred uncs exist and although most are the typical bagmarked 60 quality, a number of them are choice or gem quality.
