1863. PCGS graded AU-58 PQ. Lovely golden toning. This is an essential issue for the date and mint collector that is elusive in any grade; furthermore, it being a major rarity in Mint State, the offering of a choice AU58 example like this presents a major opportunity. Few have survived at this Choice AU grade level. Even Harry Bass, a major buyer of gold in the 1960s thru 1980s had just an Extremely Fine example, and that had been cleaned. Some authorities rate this date the third most difficult Type One Double Eagle from the Philadelphia Mint. The surfaces are immaculate for the grade, free from the usual abrasions. A wonderful example of this rare 1863-P mint issue that will positively make the forward-looking buyers day! Pop 12; 18 finer (PCGS # 8939) .
Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,000.

Realized $16,100
