Description

1850 Double Eagle, AU55
First Year of Issue

1850 $20 AU55 NGC. The 1850 double eagle is the first year of the regular issue for the type and denomination, and is very popular as such. Most surviving examples grade Very Fine to About Uncirculated, and Mint State specimens are rare. The reddish-gold surfaces of this Choice AU example exhibit well-defined devices. Scattered marks are consistent with a large, heavy gold coin that has seen some circulation.
From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 268F, PCGS# 8902)
