Our 1873-S Pre-33 $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagles come with a Very Fine 30 grade. This grade indicates medium or light wear, with the coins details still clearly visible. Falling between 20 and 35 on the Sheldon Numeric Scale, these coins are on the higher end of the Very Fine category. The Closed 3 designation refers to the compact shape of the 3 in the 1873 date mark.


The obverse of the 1873 Liberty Gold Double Eagle showcases Lady Liberty in a left-profile bust. Designed by Longacre in 1850, this portrait features Liberty with a coronet crown, encircled by 13 stars.


The reverse of the 1873-S $20 Double Eagle Coin depicts the Great Seal of the United States. Longacres design presents a front-facing bald eagle with the US national shield, holding the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace. Above the eagles head is a ring of 13 stars and the national motto.


The Double Eagle series is unique with just two designs throughout its circulation. Unlike other US Eagle denominations that started in 1794/95 and saw early design changes, the Double Eagle began in 1850 and retained Longacre’s design until 1907, followed by Saint-Gaudens’ design from 1907 to 1933.
