With a record-setting original mintage of 2.9 million pieces, the 1861 is understandably among the most plentiful Type One double eagles in today's market. This comment applies to both circulated and Mint State examples, but we caution bidders that the '61-P is scarce at the latter level when compared to the number of high-grade gold type collectors active in today's market. With full mint bloom and well impressed devices, the Brilliant Uncirculated representative in this lot is sure to have no difficulty finding its way into an impressive collection. Both sides exhibit green-gold color and a texture that is softly frosted in most areas. Free of individually notable abrasions, with pleasingly strong eye appeal. (PCGS 8932)
