Description

Near-Mint 1852-O Twenty
Prooflike Fields

1852-O $20 AU58 NGC. CAC. The 1852-O Liberty Head double eagle is probably the second most available twenty dollar issue from the New Orleans Mint. The reported mintage of 190,000 pieces was quite generous in the series context. Doug Winter estimates 900-1100 examples survive in all grades, with 200-250 AU specimens. Current population data indicates a slightly smaller population, as NGC and PCGS together have graded 921 coins, with 113 pieces in AU58; those figures undoubtedly contain a few duplicate submissions (11/10). Only one variety is known for the date, and the issue is extremely popular with mintmark type collectors.
The present coin is a sharply detailed specimen, with the slightest traces of wear on the design high points. The fields are greenish-gold and prooflike, with remarkably few abrasions for the grade. Census: 79 in 58, 14 finer (11/10).
From The Henry Miller Collection.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 268L, PCGS# 8907)
