Description & Analysis

The Type Three Liberty double eagles, especially those coined in the last two decades of the 19th century, abound with condition rarities that can be found without any difficulty in circulated grades, remaining available through the MS63 level in most cases. Many of these dates are quite rare in MS64 quality and virtually unknown any finer
