Pop 1, None Graded Higher 1889-S Liberty Eagle NGC MS65

From a mintage of 425,400 pieces, the 1889-S Liberty eagle is not too difficult to locate in lower circulated grades but Choice examples are rare. Writing all the way back in 2006, Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth remarked:

“MS-64 examples are very rare and the finest certified example is a single PCGS MS-65 coin, which has yet to appear on the market.” The current PCGS population report shows one MS65+ example, (but no MS65’s) with none higher. For its part, the NGC population is 1 with none graded higher.

Listed at $54,000 in the CDN CPG and $69,000 in the NGC price guide.

Offered at $35,750
