Set Description:

The Arlington Collection can still be viewed at my website: http://www.acdwyer.com/.

In early 2008, after three years of having the #1 set of Type 1 Double Eagles on the NGC Registry, I felt it was time to let someone else have a shot at the top.

During this time, The Arlington Collection has become the second most viewed set of any type on the registry, which says a lot about the popularity of Type 1 Double Eagles and shipwreck coins.

It now includes much more than just double eagles. In the future I hope to put my type collection on the registry and even a couple of signature sets.

Highlights of The Arlington Collection of Double Eagles were:

1860-O MS60PL (SS Republic) - This coin is not only the finest known, but the only

1860-O graded mint state by either NGC or PCGS. It is also the only example of the

1860-O found in the shipwreck.

The top three graded coins in the collection are each from a different shipwreck:

1857-S MS65PL (SS Central America)

1865 MS65 (SS Republic)

1865-S MS65 (SS Brother Jonathan)

Other highlights include:
1854-O AU53

1855-O AU58 SS Republic (one of only 3 found in the wreck, all AU58)

1856-O AU55 (NGC and PCGS have graded only 16 coins in total with 3 graded higher)

1857 MS63 (beautiful condition census with NGC grading only 2 higher, PCGS none higher)

1857-S MS63DMPL SS Central America (would not fit in this set)

1859-O AU58 (look no clash marks, what do the experts know?)

1859-S DDO AU53 SS Republic (would not fit in this set)

1861 MS63PL SS Republic (highest graded PL from the wreck)

1861-O AU58 SS Republic (unique, only example found in the wreck of any grade)
