Description:
The Eliasberg 1859 J-257 Pattern Double Eagle
1859 P$20 Paquet's Liberty Seated Double Eagle, Judd-257, Pollock-305, R.6, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. The obverse features Paquet's design with a seated figure of Liberty facing to the left, a fasces supported by her right hand and a shield by her left hand. Around, 13 stars and below, the date. An eagle is partially hidden by the shield. The reverse design has a heavy wreath enclosing the date, denomination 20 DOLLARS, and legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The lettering is all in Paquet's distinctive style, apparently not used by any other engravers. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Approximately 20 examples of this pattern variety are known, including several that are gilded, like another in the present sale. A similar obverse design, without the eagle, appears on some pattern half dollars of this date. The surfaces are lightly reflective with predominant blue and olive color. Traces of mint red appear on both sides, more in evidence on the reverse. A few tiny contact marks and lint marks are visible on each side.
