100 Greatest U.S. Coins Series: 1861 "Paquet Reverse" Liberty Head Double Eagle

100 Greatest U.S. Coins Series: 1861 "Paquet Reverse" Liberty Head Double Eagle

Oftentimes the coins that make the top 100 Greatest United States Coins list as compiled by Whitman Publishing are those that are deemed experimental.
