Stack's Bowers Auction August 2019 ANA U.S. Coins Auction Rosemont, IL Aug-2019 Exceptional Premium Gem 1899 Eagle Just One Finer at PCGS 1899 Liberty Head Eagle. MS-66+ (PCGS). CAC. A Condition Census example of an otherwise readily obtainable late date Liberty Head eagle issue. This is a gorgeous coin, both sides drenched in a bold blend of frosty mint luster and vivid rose-orange patina. Fully struck from the dies and expertly preserved, this pristine-looking beauty will please even the most discerning gold type or date collector. The Philadelphia Mint produced 1,262,219 ten-dollar gold eagles for commercial use in 1899. Mint State survivors abound in numismatic circles, the issue clearly seeing extensive use in export trade. Due also to the high quality of production noted for most examples (the present coin included), the 1899 is a popular issue among collectors seeking a single coin to represent the Liberty Head with Motto eagle type of 1866 to 1907. Even Gems in MS-65 are plentiful by ten-dollar gold standards, although in higher grades the conditionally rare nature of this issue comes readily to the fore. This is the second-finest example known to PCGS, a breathtakingly beautiful coin worthy of the strongest bids. PCGS Population: just 1; with a single MS-67 finer. PCGS# 8742. NGC ID: 267J.
