Description:
Near-Mint 1853 Moffat & Co. Twenty Dollar
1853 $20 Moffat & Co. Twenty Dollar AU58 NGC. K-19, R.5+. This issue was produced by Curtis and Perry of the United States Assay Office, although retaining the Moffat & Co. name. These pieces were produced from July to October 1853, and were issued simultaneously with the Assay Office twenty dollar pieces, although it is not known why they issued both types. The Moffat name was certainly well-known in the region.
The reverse die was similar in general design to that found no the federal double eagles being issued at the same time, and it was retained by Humbert on behalf of John Kellogg who used it for the reverse of his own coins over the next two years. This example is a lovely green-gold representative with lustrous surfaces and splashes of lilac toning on the obverse. Although light abrasions are present, both sides are remarkably well preserved. Listed on page 352 of the 2007 Guide Book.
From The Wyoming Collection. (PCGS# 10255)
