Condition Rarity Liberty Head Eagle Featured in our June 2022 Showcase Auction

The 1901-S Liberty Head eagle is one of the more common issues in its series. Today, however, we present a truly rare exception. Gold condition rarities are always exciting, and this coin does not disappoint. It is virtually pristine and seemingly earmarked for a high-quality gold type set. Both sides of this lovely coin are fully struck with razor sharp detail from the rims to the centers. Exhibiting satiny mint luster and vivid reddish-orange color, one cannot help but admire this coin’s advanced technical quality and outstanding eye appeal. Graded MS-67 by NGC, the example to be offered in our June 2022 Official Auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Summer Expo is among a relatively tiny group of Superb Gem survivors from a mintage of more than 2.8 million coins. This Condition Census 1901-S ten deserves the assigned grade and it would be difficult to find a nicer Mint State coin in today’s market. There is no evidence of any plus graded 67s, or anything else finer at PCGS or NGC, making this beauty perfect for collectors building finest known sets. From its lovely, striated tones to its immaculate, lustrous surfaces, this 1901-S eagle will certainly be a highlight when it crosses the auction block in June.
