Description:
1855 Kellogg & Co. Double Eagle, AU58
K-3b, Fill-In for the Nascent U.S. Mint
1855 $20 Kellogg & Co. Twenty Dollar AU58 NGC. K-3b, R.5. Short arrows, O of CO in Liberty's hair. The long-expected opening of the San Francisco Mint in 1854 failed to alleviate the sporadic shortages of gold coins in California of denominations smaller than the octagonal, bulky "slugs" or quintuple eagles. Kellogg & Co., as well as Wass, Molitor, stepped in to help fill the void with 1855-dated twenty dollar gold pieces. This piece displays a few scattered ticks and hits, but much of the original luster remains over beautiful deep orange-gold surfaces. The last 5 in the date is partially effaced on the flag, apparently as struck, or at least partially so. The reverse shows fewer marks overall than the obverse. Census: 16 in 58, 11 finer (11/12). Listed on page 387 of the 2013 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10225)
