This 1861-S Liberty Double Eagle realized $69,000 at Bowers and Merena’s June 2010 Baltimore Auction. The rarest Type I Double Eagle struck in the San Francisco Mint, the 1861-S Paquet owes its ranking to both a limited mintage and heavy circulation on the frontier, aided by a lack of contemporary numismatic interest in these coins. A limited mintage of 19,250 pieces for this issue is attributed to the Mint’s experimentation with a new reverse design for the Liberty Double Eagle. (Click image to enlarge)

The eight-session sale, occurring June 17-19, included more than 6,000 lots of U.S. coins and currency, ancient and foreign coins, and foreign paper money.
