Stack's Bowers Auction March 2018 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Mar-2018 CAC Ex. Legend July 2017 Lot 501 Top-of-the-Pop 1878 Double Eagle 1878 Liberty Head Double Eagle. MS-64 (PCGS). CAC. This glorious Choice Mint State example ranks among the finest certified 1878 double eagles. Featuring a blend of satiny mint luster and vivid medium gold patina, the surfaces are overall smooth and fully deserving of the impressive near-Gem rating from PCGS. It is sharply struck throughout with eye appeal to spare. The circulation strike mintage for this issue is 543,625 pieces, and portions of the mintage were used in international trade, accounting for many of the Mint State examples in today's market. We estimate that 500 to 800 or more Uncirculated coins are extant, the majority of those being MS-60 to MS-62. In MS-63 the population thins quickly, while neither PCGS nor NGC has certified an example finer than MS-64. This is an impressive condition rarity that would be a highlight in any cabinet. PCGS Population: 8; 0 finer. PCGS# 8985. NGC ID: 26B3. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
