History, Information, and Value of 1884-S Gold Liberty Double Eagle
Value of 1884-S $20 Double Eagle
The typical 1884-S double eagle is sharply struck, lustrous when offered in Mint State, and peppered with numerous abrasions from extensive commercial use. This issue is obtainable with ease in all grades from VF through MS-63. Beginning at the MS-64 level, the conditionally challenging nature of the 1884-S comes to the fore with such pieces very scarce and Gems exceedingly rare. NGC reports a single MS-66 at the top of its Census, while the finest certified at PCGS grades MS-65+.
