1898 Double Eagle with Sepia Tone Baby Portrait on Reverse. Choice AU. This lustrous medium gold double eagle has done some time as a pocket keepsake, but to no great detriment to the surfaces. The reverse features an intriguing sepia tone photo of a young child, cute as the proverbial button, in late 19th-century garb. The picture is slightly faded but readily apparent. Unusual and certainly rare; the writer has not seen one of these before.
