Description

Well Preserved 1851 Liberty Double Eagle

1851 $20 MS62 NGC. A coin of uncommon beauty and importance to collectors. Type One Twenties are very rare in strict mint condition. No dates were saved in appreciable numbers as cash reserves in banks at the time, and few individuals could afford the luxury of setting aside the buying power one of these coins represented in the mid-19th century. This piece is finely detailed on the hair curls and star radials and there are no obvious or singularly distracting blemishes on the design elements. Each side presents rich, green-gold color amid partially reflective fields. Population: 3 in 62, none are finer.(#8904) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 268H, PCGS# 8904)
