History, Information, and Value of 1901-S Gold Liberty Double Eagle
Value of 1901-S $20 Double Eagle
Strike for this issue ranges from sharp to slightly soft around the peripheries on one or both sides. Most survivors are moderately to heavily abraded. In Mint State the 1901-S double eagle displays excellent luster that is usually either satiny or frosty in texture. Although it is scarcer than the generous mintage would suggest, the 1901-S is still obtainable with relative ease up to and including the MS-64 level of preservation. This issue is rare in Gem Mint State, the finest certified being a single MS-66 seen by PCGS.
