Set Description:

A set of nice Type I Double Eagles selected for their originality and eye appeal. In some cases, these coins have some unique or interesting characteristic, as documented in the associated write-up.

Many of the dates are special because they are not from a shipwreck. See the 1856-S, 1865-S and especially the 1854-S. The latter is probably the finest known (non seawater) coin of this issue in existance.

The 1862 Philadelphia is the unquestioned finest known of this exceedingly rare Philly mint Type One Double Eagle.

The New Orleans Double Eagles in this collection (the most difficult mint of the set to collect) also make up the Double Eagles that are part of the Louisiana Collection of New Orleans Gold Coins. See, in particular, the 1859-O, which is not only a beautiful speciman (and prooflike, to boot), but also the finest known of this date/mint.

See also the 1861-O for a fun story and a very unique coin.
