1861 Double Eagle

1861 Double Eagle, Coronet Paquet reverse

Production of this coin was stopped by the U.S. Mint due to late-breaking design revisions, but authorities did not receive word until after a few of the coins had already been produced. Just two examples of this coin are known to exist, though more may have been minted.
