CoinUpdate reports that the 497 U.S. Double Eagle gold coins found in an old grape-drying shed in France have been graded by PCGS. Most of the nearly 500 coins graded MS63 or better, with three 1924 Double Eagles grading MS66.

The coins, found by a worker remodeling an old building belonging to the Lanson Champagne company, will be auctioned in Los Angeles June 3rd by Bonhams. The coins are dated between 1851 and 1928, and no one knows how they got into the rafters of the building or who put them there.
