Description:
Rare Twenty Dollar Gold Blank Planchet
Type One, Without Upset Rim
Blank Type One Planchet for a Double Eagle -- Not Graded -- NGC. It is an almost universal opinion among error enthusiasts that gold errors are the rarest of all; the highest-value coins produced by the U.S. Mint received the most scrutiny, and so errors were far more likely to be caught before release. This blank planchet for a double eagle gold coin, however, somehow escaped its minting facility undetected. The weight listed by NGC, 33.45 grams, is within tolerance for a double eagle; the standard weight, converted from grains to grams, is 33.436 grams. A Type One planchet without upset rim, this blank is predictably smooth save for the usual pre-striking abrasions and two narrow scrapes that run the length of the coin, likely artifacts of the rolling process used to create the "strip" from which planchets are punched.
